Works from 20 artists drawing attention to the impacts of proposed development in Moreton Bay at Toondah Harbour, will soon feature in an exhibition at St John’s Cathedral, Brisbane.
The Safe Harbour Art Exhibition opening by the Dean of St John’s Cathedral the very reverend Dr Peter Catt is on Thursday 19 May at 6:00pm.
Artists will present environmental themes in diverse media including paint, print, pottery and photography said Exhibition Director Ms Rhyl Henzell.
“Redlands community support for this exhibition is so strong that we’ve charted a 53 seat bus to get people from Cleveland to the Opening Night Wine & Cheese Event” she said.
Iconic species threatened by the proposed mega development include koalas, turtles and migratory shorebirds such as the critically endangered Eastern curlew.
The plight of migratory shorebirds will be the subject of a presentation by Robert Bush of the Queensland Wader Study Group, in the Cathedral on Wednesday 1st June from 10:30am.
Artwork will be on display and available for purchase for five weeks in the historic Cathedral until June 26th, with 25% of sales revenue donated to Birdlife Australia.
