Each year a special market day is held in conjunction with the Moreton Bay Region Art Awards. The market day is a unique opportunity for the public to purchase a wide range of handmade art and craft direct from the artist. It is also an important opportunity for exhibition visitors to meet artists and art organisations of the region.
If you are interested in participating in the market day, contact the Pine Rivers Art Gallery.
