Fresh Eyes is an exhibition held every two years, focusing on capturing the evolving landscape of the Moreton Bay Region. It invites four artists with a connection to this area to share their personal perspectives and experiences of this place and the transformations it undergoes.

In 2023, guest curator Libby Harward will guide artists Kieron Anderson, Lexie Abel, Shan Michaels and Gabe Parker to explore and express their individual and distinct views on the Moreton Bay landscape. The aim is to create a lasting portrayal of this region that will resonate with future generations.
