Artel, the creative studio of CPL – Choice, Passion, Life, is located in Redcliffe and provides the necessary tools, space, and instruction to support its artists to creatively express themselves as a dynamic artistic movement. The exhibition title Reasonable & Necessary is taken from the 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.

An exhibition held in conjunction with Queensland Disability Action Week 2020.

Reasonable & Necessary: prints and artist books by Artel Artists is an initiative of Museums & Galleries Queensland in partnership with CPL and curated by Lynne Seear. This project has been supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland; the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory governments; and the Australian Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body. The project is proudly sponsored by Hutchinson Builders and Moreton Bay Regional Council.
