PROJECT | AFTM 2015 Emerging Artists Award and Group Exhibition

Harbinger’s John Armstrong will mentor the 2015 Art from the Margins Emerging Artists over the next few months in preparing for a group exhibition at The Graydon Gallery, New Farm. The seven emerging artists were selected from over 200 artists who entered the 2014 Art from the Margins Brisbane Festival Exhibition. The winners of the 2015 AFTM Emerging Artists Award are Matthew Short, Levi Diball, Laura Teall, Irene Martin-Miller, Gary Olson, Maureen Young, and Glynn Parr.

As an initiative of Art from the Margins, the 2015 Emerging Artist Award and Exhibition supports artists to further develop their creative vision and to participate in a professional group exhibition at the Graydon Gallery. The program also offers individual mentoring and guidance, and support from Art from the Margins. Next year is the fifth year of the award, made possible with the generous ongoing support of The Graydon Gallery.

In the capacity of mentor, John will meet with the artists and provide professional feedback and discussions on developing and selecting works to display, guidance on presentation, pricing of works, working in the commercial world of art and further creative development. The program commences this week with an initial meeting between AFTM, the participating artists and John.

The project will culminate in a group exhibition opening on Wednesday 8 April and running until Sunday 12 April 2015 at The Graydon Gallery, 29 Merthyr Road New Farm.
