Exhibition at the Seaside Museum:
Hidden in Plain View
Come and say ‘Hi’ to BIEPA at the Shopping Centre!
As part of our 40th Anniversary celebrations, we shall be present at the Bribie Island Shopping Centre from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Wednesday 7th, Thursday 8th and Friday 9th March.
Do pop by our stand to chat with our members and learn about BIEPA’s work in protecting the unique Bribie Island environment and the exciting events we have planned for our Anniversary Year.
We shall have available our greeting cards, numbered copies of our Grevillea Banksii framed print and our popular books “Bribie Birds” and “Wildflowers of Bribie Island”.
Why not buy a ticket in our $1 raffle to have a chance of winning “Storm over the Passage” a 30 x 60 cm original acrylic painting on canvas by local artist and BIEPA member Glenda Charles?
Glenda writes: “This was painted during a recent week of almost continuous rain. I do love the changing moods of the sea and often the view over the Passage is a subtle combination of greys. This painting is a raffle prize to raise money for BIEPA’s projects and to announce my 2-week exhibition, which will be held at the
Bribie Island Community Arts Centre from 25 June to 9 July.
The exhibition will tie in with the wide range of activities to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of BIEPA.
The artworks, mainly oil on canvas, will celebrate the beauty and diversity of the Moreton Bay region.
I hope that they are a heartfelt homage to the importance of connectedness”.

Exhibition at the Seaside Museum:
Out of the Blue
Out of the Blue is an environmental success story. The health of the oceans and their wildlife have long been affected by ‘ghost gear’ – lost or abandoned fishing nets, pots, and other fishing gear.
A grassroots project that began in Far North Queensland has made inroads into removing and repurposing discarded fishing gear from our oceans. Hear the stories, see the art that was made, and understand how this is a story that everyone can be part of.
Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council, in collaboration with GhostNets Australia.
This will AMAZE you!
As part of the 40th. Anniversary of BIEPA, Glenda Charles is exhibiting a collection of artworks in acknowledgement and appreciation of our natural environment.
The exhibition opening is at 2 pm on Saturday, 30th June
