New exhibition celebrates our love for Redlands as gallery turns fifteen


Redlanders are invited for morning tea and a floor talk on Sunday 17 June at Redland Art Gallery (RAG) to help celebrate its 15th Birthday with a new exhibition that highlights what people love about Redlands.

Redland City Mayor, Karen Williams said the #luvRedlands exhibition draws inspiration from more than 4,800 residents and visitors who shared what they feel is unique to the Redlands as part of a ten month City Brand project.

Showcasing artworks from the RAG Collection, #luvRedlands is a fun and playful way of engaging with visitors of all ages while telling some of the stories behind the new place brand.

“Redlands is set to emerge with an exciting new identity following consultation with almost 5,000 locals, business owners and visitors.

“The brand positioning statement, ‘Redlands Coast – Naturally Wonderful’ emerged from the research and was the clear choice among participants in the engagement.

“We are excited to be embarking on a new journey to deliver a Redlands story that will support business, attract trade and investment, open up tourism opportunities and build on our already strong community pride.” Cr Williams said.
