|Ground/Passage: Poetic mapping of Russell Island presents a textural and visual poetic mapping of the island that has become artist Sharon Jewell’s home over the past decade. The works have developed from an increasingly intimate view of this world, while at the same time they reflect a more pervasive reverence, expressed through the careful selection and handling of materials, in both sculptural and drawn form.|

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.
