Eleven galleries across Queensland have jumped at the chance to present Museums & Galleries Queensland’s new touring exhibition Reasonable & Necessary: prints and artist books by Artel Artists. 

Launching at Redcliffe Art Gallery, the ‘home town’ of CPL’s Artel creative industries studio, Reasonable & Necessary is the first-ever touring exhibition of works by these outstanding artists.

Supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland, this touring initiative will generate widespread recognition for these professional artists, some of whom possess complex and profound disabilities.

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