Redland Art Gallery (RAG) is hosting a special new exhibition to celebrate its works collected over the past two decades with the A Time and Place: Celebrating 20 years of the RAG Collection, which begins on 14 January.
Redland City Council Mayor Karen Williams said the diverse selection of works features art from the early twentieth century through to the present day.
“Council is committed to resourcing and facilitating the acquisition and management of a quality visual arts, craft and design collection,” Cr Williams said.
“The RAG collection showcases the diversity and uniqueness of Redlands Coast’s heritage, culture and identity and currently houses more than 750 artworks produced by more than 250 artists.
“These include local, emerging, established, early settler and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists.
“This special exhibition reflects upon the social, political and environmental history of the area, acknowledges the successes of Quandamooka artists, and celebrates the natural beauty of Redlands Coast.”
A Time and Place: Celebrating 20 years of the RAG Collection will be at Redland Art Gallery, Capalaba from Saturday 14 January until Tuesday 7 March 2023.
A floor talk from Redland Art Gallery curator Kylie Spear and light lunch will be held at noon on Thursday 2 February 2023. Bookings are essential for the floor talk.
