Metamorphosis Unframed
An open exhibition on unframed A3 paper

Foyer Gallery > 3 May – 9 June 2019

Entries close 4pm Monday 15 April 2019

2019 celebrates new beginnings and new opportunities, as well as the realisation of Belconnen Arts Centre Stage 2. Artists are being invited from throughout Australia to respond to themes of change, metamorphosis, growth, journey and evolution on unframed A3 paper (29.7cm x 42cm). We ask you to investigate your ideas of transition and transformation with imagination, a sense of play, boldness, thoughtfulness or contemplation.

We welcome contributions from all ages, viewpoints and levels of experience. Artists working in any stage of their creative practice, be it as a professional or hobbyist, are welcomed to submit work exploring these themes in any medium; this includes drawing, painting, printmaking, photography and mixed media – works simply need to be on paper. All works will be eligible for consideration in the $500 People’s Choice Award, with the winner announced at the conclusion of the exhibition.
