About the exhibition

Reasonable & Necessary: prints and artist books by Artel Artists is an initiative of Museums & Galleries Queensland (M&G QLD), curated by Lynne Seear.

Artel, the creative studio of CPL – Choice, Passion, Life, located in Redcliffe, south-east Queensland, provides the necessary tools, space and instruction to supports its Artists to creatively express themselves as a dynamic artistic movement.

The exhibition title, Reasonable & Necessary, is taken from National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) criteria. With the uncertainty surrounding the NDIS, the Artel studio is not just reasonable and necessary, but essential, providing real career prospects for Artists.

Works in the exhibition captivate on many levels – they have been grouped by the exhibition Curator, Lynne Seear, into eight themes: Places, People, Family, Voices, Sailing, Driving, Mark Making and Artist Books.

The Artel Artists' works are described by Lynne as "refreshingly unpretentious and exceedingly skilled, using visual languages that are contemporary, distinctive and undeniably their own".
