All About Mee: A retrospective of art by Sheelah Mee (1920 - 2013)
10.30am SUnday 4 December 2016
Redland Art Gallery, Cleveland
This exhibition celebrates Sheelah Mee, an artist and teacher in the Brisbane modernist scene from the 1970s. She lived in Redland City from 1972 until 2004, and was involved with the Redland Yurara Art Society. Mee made paintings, prints, and sculptures that express the reality of her domestic environment.
What remains compelling about Mee is her creative drive. From the moment her six children were independent, she committed to the art practice that she had first explored as a young woman in London. From the 1970s and into the 21st century, she worked prolifically, exhibited in galleries and prizes, and enjoyed success up to and including her last exhibition (2007). All About Mee expresses her creativity in media from paintings to prints, sculpture to sewing, from the minutiae of her domestic environment to her influence on other artists.
All About Mee is curated by Louise Martin-Chew and Dominique Macedo.
