Opened in 2003, Redland Art Gallery features six exhibition spaces over two locations at Cleveland and Capalaba.

The gallery’s aim is to present a balanced and varied exhibition program of innovative and traditional works that provide opportunities for residents and visitors to engage with the visual arts, craft and design and support representation of the Redland city’s culture and heritage.


Exhibition program


Running from 8 February 2015 to 22 March 2015, Transparent: Watercolour in Queensland 1850s – 1980s explores the long and diverse history of watercolour painting in Queensland. The exhibition brings together over 150 watercolours from the Queensland Art Gallery Collection.

East Coast Encounter, exhibiting from 10 October 2014 to 22 November 2015, shows significant Australian Indigenous and non-Indigenous artists, writers and songwriters re-imagining the encounter by Captain James Cook and his crew with Aboriginal people in 1770.


Collection


The Redland Art Gallery Collection currently holds over 200 artworks produced by more than 100 artists. Artists represented include local, noted emerging, established, early settler and Indigenous artists.

Redland City Council is committed to resourcing and facilitating the acquisition and management of a quality visual arts, craft and design collection that reflects the diversity and uniqueness of Redlands’ heritage, culture, identity and sense of place.


History


Currently in its ninth year, Redland Art Gallery is funded by Redland City Council and is dedicated to the late Eddie Santagiuliana, a former mayor, who advocated for the establishment of the gallery.

Art awards


Redland Art Awards is a national biennial contemporary painting competition open to all Australian artists. First held in 1981, the award was initially established by Redland Yurara Art Society, one of Queensland’s oldest art groups, and is now a major feature in Redland Art Gallery’s regular exhibitions program. Previous winners include Claudine Marzik, Karla Marchesi, Nick Ashby and Loongkoonan, among others. This year’s award runs from 12 October to 23 November 2014.
