VERGE Collective is an all-female collective formed by six photography and new media artists currently living and working in Brisbane and surrounds. The collective aims to initiate and implement artistic and professional development opportunities tailored to support its female members who manage work and family commitments as they seek to consolidate their artistic practices. In doing so, VERGE strives to create a community where like-minded artists can support each other as they create, reflect, collaborate, exhibit and share skills with each other and the wider community. VERGE Collective are Vanessa Bertagnole, Julia Scott Green, Christine Ko, Lisa Kurtz, Tamara Whyte and Emma Wright.
AFTM Foto Group exhibitors include Charles Charalambous, Coleen Stevenson, Pierre Crowl, Levi Diball, Magda Labuda, Tamika Peterson, Wendy Hewton, Margarita Lakovleva and Niel Bates.
We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with the Inspired AIR art-partners VERGE Collective, Jugglers Art Space Inc and artist Therese Flynn-Clarke. This project is supported by the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
