EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST - DUE 26 MAY
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.
