Between the Tides is a free community art event on the Redcliffe Peninsula, exhibiting works by locally based Moreton Bay region Artists. Carte Blanche, the resident artists at Redcliffe State High School (RSHS), in conjunction with the students, various community members and art groups, are working together to turn the Scarborough foreshore into a vibrant sandscape. This outdoor art exhibition will encourage the use of recycled products to create innovative and emotive artworks.
Between the Tides exhibition will be hosted on Sunday the 28th of July along the Scarborough foreshore - at the corner of Oyster Point Esplanade and Endeavour Esplanade. The display will stretch across the tidal sand bar to create large-scale interactive installations.
The event will be run across 4 hours between 11am-3pm. Visitors are encouraged to meet the local artists, enjoy the visual impact and the creative ingenuity of the artworks.
Carte Blanche, an alliance of contemporary artists based in the Redcliffe region, with the support of Moreton Bay Arts Council and local councillors, have organised Between the Tides for the last five years at Deception Bay. This year Between the Tides has moved to the Redcliffe Peninsula, allowing closer access for locals and the many tourists who visit at weekends. New location: Corner of Oyster Point Esp. & Endeavour Esp., Scarborough, Qld.
Each year the aim is to raise awareness of the artistic potential and adaptability of recycled materials.
Between the Tides focuses on bringing art into a different environment, out from the gallery, encouraging a wider appreciation from anyone who passes by or who plans their visit. By using resources which are often discarded, artists highlight the overuse of waste products and create interesting works very cheaply.
With the natural beauty of our coastal environment as a backdrop, these imaginative instalments along the foreshore, bring art into everyday life.
The real kicker of the event is in its inclusivity; the day is not limited to artistic professionals but also invites schools, community groups, artistic cohorts and individual casual artists. Groups are encouraged to come and set up their installations at 10am for the opening of the exhibit at 11am. Let the team know you’re coming by reaching out to them on their Facebook page or their email address. The day aims to produce a representation of the diverse Moreton Bay region and Greater Brisbane arts scape by creating a unified canvas for public enjoyment.
The surrounding areas also offer pet-friendly beaches meaning that your hip, art-loving pooch can be brought along as well. Just make sure they don’t leave behind their own little sculptures.
With the weather cooling down, enjoy a freshly made cup of coffee from the coffee vendor who will be on site to keep the artists and public caffeinated. Additionally, if you are looking to extend your time in the area and make the most of the beautiful surroundings. Just down the way in Scarborough and Redcliffe, you can enjoy alfresco dining along the seaside and a boutique shopping experience.
