Welcome to 2024

January 9, 2024
2023 certainly ended with a bang.  The last exhibition for 2023 ('21st Annual Art Show". 18 Nov - 16 Dec 2023) had just come to an end, when Cyclone Jaspar started heading our way.  The flooding that followed was catastrophic for the whole region, and recovery will take many months (and possibly years).  Like most of Mossman's main street, the pottery/glass sheds at DAB suffered from water inundation.  Sam and her wonderful bunch of helpers have done an absolutely incredible job of cleaning up the sheds and removing damaged goods - we can't thank them enough for their incredible effort. But because of this DAB will remain closed for at least the rest of January to allow us time to recover.  

But reopen we will - and you can find the new program for Semester 1, 2024, on the link on the next page.  Although we might have to make some minor changes because of the flow-on impacts from the flooding, there is so much in the program to look forward to,  We hope to see you all back at DAB soon.
