LIVING on Bribie Island Nicola Garrett said there were three scooters for every 10 people on the island.

Seeing this has led to her inspiration of documenting them for upcoming exhibition Attitudes and Perceptions.

"I hope that by showing the series of the mobility scooters the audience will question their perceptions of people that use mobility scooters," Nicola said.

"There is a light-hearted but serious side to the series. My hope is that the audience will take the time to talk to the owners of these scooters, get to know them.

"They are all interesting and as unique as their scooters."

Nicola is one of five emerging artists from the Queensland College of Art that will take part in the exhibition from Tuesday, November 17, to Sunday, November 22.

This exhibition examines the boundaries between a person's perception and reality.

Nicola Garrett, Gail Johnston, Carolyn Stubbin, Adam Robert Young and Kazmin Samia work across a range of mediums, including photography, printmaking, painting and digital art.

Their art practice explores issues of human rights, gender, identity and humanity.

"The exhibition endeavours to explore the difference between the actual and the perceived world, challenging the beliefs, attitudes and understanding towards today's society," Nicola said.

The Banksia Beach resident said they will also hold a free Altered Page workshop by Eco Art in Studio 2 Bribie Island Community Arts Centre on Saturday, November 21, from 10am-noon.
