Plant-blind: We only see things that look like us - Redcliffe Art Gallery Saturday, 22 May 2021 - Saturday, 14 August 2021
Plant-blindness is a term used to refer to people’s inability to see or identify the trees and shrubs that surround them. It is a phenomenon that is becoming more common as greater numbers of people live in urban areas and disengage from the natural environment.
Redcliffe-based artist collective, Carte Blanche, have reconnected with nature, drawing attention to the diversity of trees that are found in the Moreton Bay Region. Through collaborative and individual works these artists reflect upon the importance of the natural environment, and how it connects us all.
Public Programs are offered during this exhibition: Blind drawing – nature walk and drawing activity Artist books – create your own small artist book Meet the Artists – come along and say hi! Self-paced activity zone – suitable for adults and children. Please refer to the Gallery public programs for further details

A few friends and I spent a couple of hours doing a creative textural art workshop with Ruby Purple at my home last week. It was such fun, every one loved it. We loved the creative freedom of expressive flow. With no experience in any of these mediums I gained a wealth of knowledge and new skills. It was fun too! Jeannine "Your work is beautifully honest, gritty and real! Keep pushing and breaking through boundaries" Chantel - Paper Bou "Most impressed with your work, I love your latest designs they are beautiful" Julie "I like the way she creates with space and that she has a message, Preservation of our Environment" Rob "My painting is lovely! Just arrived and done by the very talented and beautiful hearted Ruby Purple. She has some amazing pieces and does wearable art as well. I have one of her lovely scarves too." Miriam "Ruby Purple's art allows you to participate, it's meaningful" Dave "Her work is engaging, alluring, different, I like that, it's a bit like her" Ruth "I find her works slightly meditative, I can look and just drift" Sandy
