'True art is but a shadow of the divine perfection,' Michelangelo once said. With its spacey clear skies, abundant wildlife, cascading hills and crystalline seas, Byron is artistic perfection. It's no surprise then, that a place of such inspirational beauty is fertile ground for so many creative, grounded people. Creating and spreading beauty is the message for all. From the streets and beaches, where you can catch local sandologists, who are doing some complex and delicate sculptures, to the markets and Aboriginal art galleries, from gifted emerging artists to established, world-renowned craftsmen, art is all around us and the creative juices of Byron are well and truly flowing. Art is the expression of the soul and with so many gifted locals producing truly beautiful and innovative creations, our arts portal is devoted to showcasing the best of Byron's un-earthed talent.
