Local artwork up in lights

Published: Friday, 8 November 2019 at 2:26:40 PM

Artists are being encouraged to express their interest in exhibiting their work in the Post Office Lane Lightbox Gallery as part of the newly opened Rocks Laneway.

Round two will allow one Midwest creative to feature their artworks in the eight A2 sized cabinets from the end of January to the start of April next year.

City of Greater Geraldton Mayor Shane Van Styn said it was a great opportunity for locals looking to get their name out there.

“The Post Office Lane Lightbox Gallery has been extremely popular with the community since opening in late September with many visitors and residents walking the stretch to view the local art,” he said.

“It’s the perfect opportunity for creatives wanting to get their name out there and it’s open to artists of all ages and skill levels.

“There’s only a few options per year to have your work showcased, so don’t delay in putting your hand up to get involved.”

Luke Barlow has also been announced as the successful applicant for round one with his collection named “Meet the Critters” which presents a contemporary view of local wildlife. The exhibition has been described by the selector’s panel as fun and entertaining with strong graphic qualities and will be on display from the end of November this year to 25 January 2020.

Successful pieces must be submitted to the City by Friday 15 November and the artist will receive a commission of $1,000 to cover costs related to the development, marketing and presentation of the work.
