Art in the heart of Moreton Bay

By James Brown

Every once in a while, we all need a little bit of nourishment for the soul. We need to break away from the typical routine and exercise our cultural muscles a little bit. Thankfully, if you own real estate in Narangba, Morayfield, Deception Bay and other areas in the Moreton Bay region, there's plenty of opportunities for doing so. 

Just take this week for example. The Moreton Bay Council will be hosting several different art-based events from Thursday onward that are sure to captivate both young and old art lovers. 

On Saturday morning, 10:30 a.m., at the Redcliffe City Art Gallery, residents can be privy to a talk by artists Deb Mostert, Keith Burt, Gwynneth Boyce and Kristen Tennyson about their work and techniques. The event is completely free and will carry over into morning tea, where the dialogue will continue. 

If you need something to occupy the kids and get them away from the television or computer screen, then there's plenty around for that, too. On Wednesday and Saturday, 10:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., the Pine Rivers Art Gallery will host a Leonardo da Vinci art activities day, giving kids between 4 and 15 years old the chance to make models of some of the famous painter's inventions. Get ready to see a room filled with tiny catapults and helicopters. 

Meanwhile, on Friday, Pine Rivers will be the site a different set of activities centred around the theme of 'Imaginary menagerie'. Any kids that come between 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. will get to make their own zoo, full of creatures that will be as weird and wonderful as their creators' imaginations let them be.

It's events like these, culturally rich and family friendly, that encapsulate why so many Australians want to buy property in Burpengary and nearby areas. Perhaps you should start thinking about it too.
