ART ST's Award Winning Artists
Joy Connell has joined the ranks of our award winning artists! She has taken out first prize in the landscape and first prize in the still life categories at the recent Beenleigh Show.
Anne Armstrong received a "Commended" for the Open section of the Ekka Fine Art Competition. It was for a beautiful painting of one of her Queenslanders. This is her second award this year after also receiving an award at Aspire Gallery's Foot Square exhibiiton.
Margaret Frost's beautiful "The Keys" painting, which was selected as a finalist in the 2016 Mandorla Art Award in Perth, not only toured several Australian galleries for a couple of months, but has also been selected to illustrate the 2018 Australian Religious Diary! Congratulations Margaret!
New ART ST Artists
I am very excited to introduce you to our new ART ST members!
Retired chef, Trevor Webb, began painting with acrylic and oils at the Lilly-Lee Gallery at Sherwood. He now paints with the Half dozen Group of Artists and shows his paintings with Artists Guild of Australia and various art shows around South-East Queensland. He paints beautiful seascapes and still lifes.
Theresa Rule's art is diverse and she finds working on several projects of varying natures keeps her mind active and ideas flowing. She paints and draws from instinct and intuition and likes to keep her artwork spontaneous.
Hot off the Easels
All our latest art can be seen on our “Hot off the Easels” page! Here, you can view a great range of all the latest paintings by ART ST Artists. We have lots of new landscapes, seascapes, animal art, still lifes, flower paintings, abstract art, cityscapes and contemporary art.
See our Artists art in the flesh
Louise Saunders is currently is exhibiting at: The Old Schoolhouse Gallery, 124-126 Shore St North, Cleveland, until November 2018
Keep an eye on our "View Art Requests" page to see the Art Requests as they are submitted. I just love seeing the artists interpretations of these requests.
An Art Request is a fantastic way to commission a special painting where you nominate the subject, size (min 80cm) and how much you wish to pay. Multiple artists participate so you have a choice of artwork!
It is a fun exercise for our artists to paint something they may not have thought of painting previously and to try new methods and subjects without the pressure of a direct commission. Paintings not purchased by the Requester are moved into the gallery and made available for general sale.
If you would like to learn more or request some art, simply complete the form which can be found on our Art Request page. The details will be distributed to all our Artists and hopefully you will have a few artworks from which to choose!
What have our Artists been up to?
For full details on where, when and who is exhibiting, please see Artists Exhibiting on our website.
ART ST loves to see our Artists exhibitng around Brisbane! Nothing beats seeing an artwork in the flesh. Internet is good, but you can't see the texture, the brushstrokes or smell the linseed!
