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?
Raffle Tickets are available at the next BIEPA Meeting on 25 June, and at Glenda Charles’s “Connection” exhibition.
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”.

Out of the Blue 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.
There are also works created by local artists out of rubbish found here on our Bribie beaches.
Exhibition developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council, in collaboration with GhostNets Australia.
This will AMAZE you!
