Local neighbourhoods are the focus of a new art exhibition opening at Redland Art Gallery, Capalaba this Saturday, 11 November.
In contrast to the mandated lockdowns and isolation periods of the COVID-19 years, the In Focus exhibition this year invited artists to step outside and capture their surrounds responding to the theme “My Street”.
Redland City Mayor Karen Williams said the result was comforting and familiar works that showcased the cultural life of the region and artistic talent across a range of media and styles.
“It is a delight to see the streets of Redlands Coast come alive through this exhibition,” Cr Williams said.
“There is beauty in our daily lives and in our streets and this has been captured by talented local artists for all to share.
“I invite our residents to view this exhibition and appreciate how fortunate we are to live in such a wonderful part of Queensland.”
In Focus is an annual exhibition that brings artists and groups together, based on a theme.
This year’s theme attracted a large number of diverse entries that showcase everyday scenes in extraordinary ways.
The exhibition runs during Capalaba gallery hours until Tuesday 16 January, 2024.
A floor talk and light lunch will be held at Redland Art Gallery, Capalaba on Thursday 16 November from noon.
