We've all seen them and perhaps even been them: tourists who are so busy taking happy snaps that they miss out on enjoying the view, the meal, the sunset, the experience, the unexpected exchange in the street.

[ADVERT]Mostyn Bramley-Moore isn't one of those people. "I know that when I travel with a camera, I tend to rely on it to collect visual memories," he explains. "Without a camera, I look harder. I sketch landscapes, I collect small souvenirs, I do studies in paint and I desperately scribble notes in an effort to lock into my brain details that I suspect that I'll want to revisit later."

Many of Bramley-Moore's sans-camera works will be on display at the Caboolture Regional Art Gallery from 15 March to 17 April in his Travelling Without a Camera exhibition.

Bramley-Moore describes drawing as fundamental to his studio practice. He produces exhibition work while travelling and also uses the flotsam and jetsam collected during his journeys to later create studio works.

Fancy taking a journey with him as he guides you through a series of his travel memories? Or perhaps you're more interested in learning how you, too, can rediscover who are you and where you've been through distilling your memories into drawings and paintings? Bramley-Moore is offering an artist talk at the Caboolture Regional Art Gallery on 22 March (10am to 11am). It's free to attend and you can savour the exhibition afterwards.

The Caboolture Regional Art Gallery is fast building a reputation as a great place to connect with artists and a safe space in which to look and learn. Its Jacaranda Acquisitive Drawing Award exhibition will take place at the same time as the Travelling Without a Camera exhibition. Both are well-supported by talks, workshops and kids activities.
