Art Exhibitions Brisbane - coming up!
Our Artists regularly participate in exhibitions and competitions in and around Brisbane. See below for who is exhibiting where over the next few months:
- Lots of our Artists will again be joining artists from across Qld and displaying their beautiful paintings at the Ekka's Fine Art Show. See paintings by Max Butler, Sheryl Fainges, Marianne Grigore, Deb Brown, Theresa Rule, Anne Armstrong, Roslyn Howse and Karen Collins and ceramics by Liz Izquierdo. 9-18 August, Brisbane Show Grounds, Bowen Hills.
If you are interested in seeing one of our paintings in the flesh, please don't hesitate to contact the Artist directly. He/she would be very happy to arrange a viewing for you.
New ART ST Artists
In February, we welcomed our first sculpture artist, Liz Izquierdo, to ART ST. Liz is an adventurer, loves nature and learning and explores diverse medium, techniques, forms, textures and colours through her sculptures. Her preferred sculpting method of choice is Raku which can provide some amazing and unpredictable results.
Our current featured Artist is GLENMARY SWAN.
To Glenmary, art is about creativity - it can be on any surface with any material. It can be planned carefully or impromptu. Glenmary likes to create still life, the shapes of birds, landscapes and abstracts. Sometimes she “switches off” her logical planning brain and allows herself to paint abstracts or semi-abstracts intuitively. Through this she finds Interesting techniques and effects.

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 paintings of Brisbane, landscapes, seascapes, animal art, still lifes, flower paintings, abstract art and contemporary art.
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.
Our most recent Art Request was from a lady to remind her of her childhood home in Germany. She loved the changing seasons there and in particular the autumn colour-changing forests. See our Artists' responses!
We received some fabulous feedback from her! "i just picked up my painting from Joy [Connell]. It is so beautiful and i can't wait to hang it in my apartment. Joy seemed such a lovely and warm person. Thank you very much for your help with this, i think your concept is fabulous and i have mentioned it to some of my friends already. Please give my sincere thank you to the other artists for their wonderful paintings too - i loved them all :) - Korana"
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!
