CURRENT EXHIBITION - CLOSED


Explore the Museum and locate the rosettes in the suffragette colours of green, white and purple and complete the crossword devised by the Redland Museum Library.

Redland Poets Cornered, a selection of poems by Redland identities past and present, together with related works of art. Narelle Renn, Jan Acton, Ruth Venner and Robyn Foster are among the artists and poets represented. All these artists have exhibited paintings and poems in the Museum in earlier exhibitions.

Discover the history of notable women of the Redlands. Find the stories of indigenous women such as Oodgeroo Noonuccal and Margaret Iselin.

Learn about the lives of pioneer women such as Elizabeth Sherrin who acted as both nurse and teacher to the early settlers.

Discover the history of women such as Doris Bloomer and Beryl Price who served Australia in wartime. Be inspired by the careers of doctors like Leslie Trotter and nurses like Rosemary Opala. 

In the Textile Gallery admire the elegant ensembles worn by ladies of the Redlands in the past, including clothing belonging to the granddaughter of Elizabeth Sherrin. John and Elizabeth were the first settlers in Cleveland in the 1800s. The very fragile family Bible they carried with them all the way to Australia is on display. Also featured are suffragette’s sashes on two gowns very similar in age and style to those worn by the suffragettes when they were trying to obtain the vote for women in the early 1900s. Wonder over a formal gown, the material hand-painted by textile artist Paula Bloch, the gown designed and made by Susan Gillespie, for a reception at Australian National Gallery to celebrate the purchase of the abstract expressionist painting "Blue Poles" by Jackson Pollock In 1976.

Women of Their Word

28th & 29th March & 4th April

POSTPONDED


Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on Friday 13 March advising against the non-essential gatherings at public events, the Management Committee has decided to postpone all Women of their Word performances and resume our event programs when it is safe to do so.

Redland Museum is still open for general admission.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Women of Their Word is a celebration of Australian women poets, women who captured their times and their experiences in verse that still delights lovers of language. Seven women poets, from Louisa Lawson to Leona Kyling, will be brought to life through performance and poetry in just three presentations at the Redland Museum. Complementing this event will be the exhibition ‘Redland Poets Cornered’, a selection of poems by Redland identities past and present, together with related works of art. Redland Museum library has compiled a crossword Trail around the Museum identifying notable Redland women. Locate and find the suffragette rosettes to complete the crossword and learn their stories.
