Have you ever looked at an artwork and thought ‘I just don’t get it’? Or have had a tricky time understanding why an artwork makes you feel, or not feel a certain way? 

Visit Redcliffe Art Gallery on 19 November 2022 and join Dr Louise R Mayhew for a free guided tour and talk about the annual acquisitive exhibition 15 Artists. The exhibition highlights recent works by Australian artists, presenting diverse voices and ideas. Whether you are well-versed in contemporary art or unfamiliar with it, this is an opportunity to experience fresh insights and understanding. Louise will introduce a selection of the artworks and discuss key concepts throughout the exhibition. 

The talk is suitable for people aged 16 years or over and will be followed by light refreshments.
