A blog about Lamb Island in Moreton Bay, Queensland – a unique little paradise under forty kilometres as the seagull flies from Brisbane CBD.

I don’t know much about art, but...

Magnanimously on my part (because this blog’s supposed to be about Lamb Island) here’s the second post running about Macleay Island, this one about its thriving arts culture, which is lately getting a certain amount of attention paid to it. From somewhere over three thousand people living on Macleay Island, the island’s various arts groups boast around three hundred artists of various kinds and various degrees of talent (in fact, several of them with international reputations). Of course, that word ‘artists’ includes potters, writers, musicians, et al – and sure, a few of them actually live on our other three islands. But however one looks at it, it all seems pretty impressive to a philistine like me. You can find out more here and here.
