A printmaking workshop will be held tomorrow in the Childers Arts Space as part of the Reasonable and Necessary Exhibition being toured by Museums and Galleries Queensland.
The exhibition, by Artel Artists, delves into the work of 33 professionals, some of whom possess complex and profound disabilities.
Artel, the creative studio of CPL – Choice, Passion, Life, is located in Redcliffe and provides the necessary tools, space, and instruction to supports its artists to creatively express themselves as a dynamic artistic movement.
Works have been grouped by the exhibition Curator Lynne Seear into eight themes: Places, People, Family, Voices, Sailing, Driving, Mark Making and Artist Books.
“This exhibition is refreshingly unpretentious and exceedingly skilled, using visual languages that are contemporary, distinctive and undeniably their own,” Lynne said.
The printmaking workshops will be held at CHARTS tomorrow, run by Artel artist Louise Taylor.
Louise has been working in the adult disability sector for 14 years as a Visual Art Coordinator for CPL.
In this role, she has developed an innovative and unique program for artists with profound and complex disabilities that aims to represent them as artists equal to those within mainstream contemporary creative communities.
Previous to this, Louise taught printmaking informally and formally, as teacher, tutor and assistant at various galleries, studios and universities, and for regional community programs.
She has been involved in a vast number of significant visual art projects and exhibitions and she has a background in both Fine Arts and Education.
