Gaythorne artist Pamela Gough will put on her tour hat this week to showcase her town in the aftermath of the Brisbane floods.
Ms Gough's exhibition My Town opens at the Art Factory Gallery from July 22 to honour the ``positive, grateful and often humorous attitude of so many who were affected directly by the floods or lost everything''.
``I'm passionate about discovering more about what you see and more about the community - looking for the soul behind the everyday,'' she said.
The exhibition features contemporary cityscapes, which are often detailed with illustrative old maps.
She said her work was a narrative acknowledgment of the heritage and history of Brisbane and its people.
``I love being a tourist in my own town,'' she said.
Her solo exhibition, My Town runs July 22-27 at South Brisbane's Art Factory Gallery.
