A MEGALO MEMBERS EXHIBITION
ENTRY DEADLINE - SAT 5TH MAY

Dear Megalo members

This year Megalo salutes the humble pictorial postcard. For over 150 years these simple cards have been posted back and forth across the globe. The Postcard has delivered messages of hope, love, happiness, humour, sorrow - good news and bad. Many postcards were originally created through print mediums such as woodcut and lithography and later screen prints.

Yours in anticipation
Megalo esq.

2018 Group exhibition - From small things, big things grow
An initiative by GOST - Gallery of small things - in partnership with Megalo Print Studio + Gallery.

Megalo is delighted to announce it will team up with GOST for a special group exhibition From small things, big things grow which will run from 1-22 September 2018. Print-based artists are invited to submit expressions of interest to participate in this exhibition.

THEME
From small things, big things grow. This exhibition will be held in two locations: Megalo, Kingston and GOST, Watson and two new works need to be created by the artists - big and small - providing artists with an opportunity to create a smaller scale of a larger work.

BACKGROUND
GOST holds one group show a year and showcases a visual arts sector. In 2017, it was Ceramics and in 2018, it's Printmaking. The GOST gallery is less than 6 metres' squared and less than 6 months old making it Canberra's tiniest + newest gallery. The Megalo gallery is nearly 3 times the size and has a rich history as Canberra's original home of print making with its studios and workshops providing 38 years of experience to the community and beyond.
