Last week, Art from the Margins (AFTM) presented the 2014 Heiser Gallery Emerging Artists Exhibition. The annual Heiser Gallery Emerging Artists Award and Exhibition is a key part of AFTM’s professional development program for artists. This is the fourth year of the awards and this year’s exhibiting artists are Tanya Darl, John Fu Chong, Stephen Corti-Griffiths, Lisa Blake and Rizzaline Kelly.

The Heiser Gallery Emerging Artist Award and Exhibition supports emerging artists to further develop their creative work and to participate in a group exhibition at the Graydon Gallery, New Farm. It offers a combination of individual mentoring and guidance from founder and director of the Heiser Gallery, Bruce Heiser, and support from AFTM.

The exhibition was opened by the Minister for Science, Information Technology, Innovation and the Arts, Hon. Ian Walker MP (pictured above), with speeches by AFTM’s Patron the Hon. Paul de Jersey AC, Chief Justice of Queensland and soon to be Queensland Governor, and AFTM Chairperson, Dr Ian Airey.

This event is a highlight of the AFTM calendar of events which will include the Brisbane Festival Exhibition to be held at Brisbane City Hall and opened by the Lord Mayor, Graham Quirk.

Given John’s ongoing role as an AFTM Board Member, Harbinger Consultants is an avid supporter of AFTM and outsider art. We have been developing a collection of outsider art over several years and we have purchased two works – by Stephen Corti-Griffiths and Rizzaline Kelly – from this most recent exhibition.

We extend our congratulations to all involved in this important initiative and the continung efforts of AFTM to raise the profile of outsider art and provide professional development opportunities for artists.
