'Light and Air': Artists in Redcliffe

'Light and Air': Artists in Redcliffe

The exhibition, Light and AiR, celebrates light in all its glory.
We do not take light for granted. Light is both substantive and ephemeral. It has mood, spirituality and form. Our palette is white light fractured, where the parts are greater than the whole.


About AiR

The Artist in Redcliffe Group (AiR) consists of nine professional artists from the Redcliffe area. 
Individuals work in paint, print, ink, clay, thread, mixed  and interactive media – and therefore appeal to a wide range of people both young and old.
Despite exhibiting together for over 10 years, each artist maintains a fiercely  independent approach to their practice – resulting in work that is neither hackneyed  nor predictable.

For such a small group, the artists have mustered many sparkling awards along the way.  Patricia Reust in 2014 won the National Mortimor Art Prize,and John A Robinson was selected as a finalist in the prestigious Jacaranda Drawing Prize in 2014 – an exhibition that tours regional galleries NSW and Queensland. These two outstanding artists were also selected to display in Moreton Bay's premier annual art event titled '15 Artists'. Barry Kidd,  and Cheryl Nugent have participated in this exhibition previously and these two were selected to represent Redcliffe at Winton in the 10-year Sister Cities anniversary. Recently, Maureen van der Zam was awarded 2nd prize overall for her print in St Steven's Cathedral Art Group Winter Exhibition 2016.

In 2013 Air was featured in a promotional documentary titled 'Light and Air' which was produced by David Sproule. The group has promoted its activities through publications, radio interviews and grant applications.
