Moreton Bay has a long history of rich cultural experiences and practice. Covering the Country of the Jinibara, Kabi Kabi and Jagera/Turrbal people there is a strong commitment to sharing culture and stories across the region. This May, Moreton Bay Regional Council’s Art Gallery Network is foregrounding the work of local First Nations artists across its three galleries in exhibition Connecting Stories - Local Artist Showcase. In these exhibitions, artists share their own stories and celebrate culture through their individual artistic practices.

The selected work exhibited at Caboolture Regional Art Gallery looks at ways which artists express their connections to Country. Through painting and photography these artists share how Country is a place to heal, nurture and connect.

Exhibiting artists at Caboolture Regional Art Gallery are BJ Murphy, Mary McMurtrie and Wendy Rix.

This event is part of Connecting Stories, a showcase of First Nations art and culture across six local governments within the South East Queensland North (SEQN) region, which includes exhibitions, public art trails, tours, workshops, artists talks and more! 

Connecting Stories has been developed by Creative Arts Alliance, as part of the Regional Arts Services Network (RASN), funded by Arts Queensland, and delivered in partnership Blaklash Creative and the SEQN Galleries Network - Gympie Regional Gallery, Noosa Regional Gallery, USC Art Gallery, Caloundra Regional Gallery, Moreton Bay Regional Galleries, The Condensery - Somerset Regional Gallery and Redland Art Gallery.
