Opening June 11, 2016 is an exhibition of the work by finalists in the Lethbridge 10000, Queensland’s small-scale art award in support of emerging Australian artists. The exhibition showcases a variety of artworks all measuring less than 60cm in diameter.
All are by emerging and mid-career Australian artists such as Australian Photography’s 2015 Photographer of the Year, Dasha Riley whose award winning fashionable youthful portraiture appears regularly in Vogue Italia. Just love her work Die Flötistin; the Flautist.
The works produced are all priced to be very affordable to the buyer, creating a unique opportunity to see and buy the artists of tomorrow, such as Scott Breton a figurative artist who works in a number of mediums, including oil on canvas.
On show at the acclaimed Lethbridge Gallery at Paddington in Brisbane, which has a fantastic stable of diverse artists, founder Brett Lethbridge commented he was “impressed by the high standard of work which made the selection of the finalists an exciting yet challenging task”.
“We tried be as diverse and inclusive as our small exhibition space will allow” commented Brett, especially “…with regards to the artwork selected for the gallery exhibition”.
