|Unregulated Spaces by Dennis McCart examines unregulated landscapes through the lens of oil painting, transforming these ignored landscapes into places of possibility and paradoxical beauty. Unwatched and disregarded, these are landscapes that sit along the fringes of our cities and suburbs: the freeway overpasses, scrublands, railway lines, bridges, transmission tower corridors, suburban creeks and abandoned quarries, a world away from the landscapes of our ideal holiday destinations.|

About Redland Art Gallery
Redland Art Gallery was officially opened in 2003 and is dedicated to the memory of Eddie Santaguiliana, a former Mayor of the Shire. The gallery is located in Redland City, east of Brisbane, an area that covers 537 square kilometres consisting of mainland and islands. Redland Art Gallery serves a population of 131,000 in a region of bayside suburbs, hinterland areas and islands scattered throughout Moreton Bay.
Redland Art Gallery’s exhibitions and events feature local, Queensland, nationally and internationally recognised artists.
The exhibition program is showcased in six exhibition spaces over two locations at Cleveland and Capalaba. Gallery programs extend to island and mainland locations. The gallery’s policy is to support and encourage access, diversity and opportunity; to create a deeper sense of identity and place; and to acknowledge the region’s significant Indigenous culture and heritage.
