FOOT SQUARE 2017

Our Annual Small Pieces Competition
Wednesday 7 June - Saturday 17 June
Opening Night: Saturday 10 June, 4:30pm - 6:30pm

From 7 to 17 June, Aspire Gallery's walls will be filled with over 150 small works for our second annual small pieces competition, Foot Square.

When the only requirement was that works must fit within a Foot Square, applications featured wood-turning, glassblowing, photography, ceramics, traditional acrylics, watercolours, embroidery and more. Simply put, Foot Square 2017 features what Brisbane artists have to offer and the resulting exhibition is a vast array of work of both emerging and established artists from all different mediums and walks of life.
