Art from the Margins
Since 2008, Art from the Margins (AFTM) has been and still is a creative initiative of Wesley Mission Queensland. AFTM has been instrumental in bringing artists together, and bridging the gap between artists living in isolation and the wider community. AFTM supports and promotes the work of artists living with adversity, disadvantage and social isolation, including artists living with mental health issues, physical or intellectual disabilities and homelessness. AFTM currently provides exhibition and professional development opportunities for over 400 artists living in and around the Brisbane area.
Come and check out our latest exhibition, Solo Exhibitions by Nicky Carey and Margarita Iakovleva, showing Saturday 12 October – Saturday 16 November 2019.
Two artists who delve into the world of the real and imaginary...Dreams are an essential source of inspiration for both Carey and Iakovleva, they explore many facets, from humour to the sardonic, anxiety to sadness. These emotions represent the rawness that is in all of us, that of the human psyche.
