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, Habitat: 2019 AFTM Emerging Artists & Mentor Exhibition, showing 25 May - 6 July 2019.
Habitat: 2019 AFTM Emerging Artists & Mentor Exhibition is a response to how we inhabit and react to our natural and built environments. The artworks have been produced during a six week mentoring program, alongside earlier works and contributions by mentors, Jugglers Art Inc. artists Rachel Apelt and BoHDi Gardener. AFTM Emerging Artists include: Kay Armstrong, Alex Crombie Van-Ewyk, David Jones, Jenny Jump and Sue Yule.
