Throughout 2015, curator Nancy Brown has worked with selected members of The Coochie Art Group to design and develop an exhibition through Sense of Coochie: Flying Arts Touring Curator Project. The Coochie Art Group is a passionate group of local artists, brought together by an absorbing love of art, who have been holding Coochiemudlo Island art classes since the 1970s. The resulting exhibition features new work by the members responding to the theme workshopped by Nancy Brown and The Coochie Art Group members

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.
