Mount Glorious is situated less than 30 km northwest of the Brisbane CBD as the crow flies, or about 45km/50mins drive by road. It is a community of less than 300 residents, spread along 6km of Mount Glorious Rd and its side roads, and surrounded by the D'Aguilar National Park.
The Mount Glorious community, together with the nearby community of Mount Nebo, is home to a large number of highly talented artists working in a wide variety of fields.
In 2014 Moreton Bay Regional Council acquired the former Camp Constable and made the small Community Hall and its surrounds available for the use of the Mount Glorious community.
As an opening event for the community, it was decided to hold an art exhibition to showcase the considerable artistic talent of Mount Glorious and nearby Mount Nebo.
The first Art with Altitude exhibition was held at Mount Glorious in 2015. Seventeen artists exhibited a range of both 2D and 3D artworks, including acrylic and oil painting, water colour, pen & ink drawing, sculpture, jewellery, ceramics, glass work, fibre art, photography and fine furniture.
The 2015 exhibition was so successful that it is now held every November as a regular event on the Mount Glorious calendar. The two-day event features artists and craftspeople from Mount Glorious and Mount Nebo, together with market stalls and food and coffee.
After an unavoidable break in 2020, owing to Covid restrictions, followed by the demolition of the original hall in 2021, the exhibition returns in 2022 in the newly constructed Mount Glorious Community Hall
