The GBA Brisbane Studio was transformed once again for our annual Brisbane Pop Up Art Show fundraiser for Hear and Say. The popular community event is held on LOUD Shirt Day each year, a national community initiative to raise funds so that children affected by hearing loss can live life loudly.
Now in its seventh year, the Art Show raised over $3,900 (with commissions still coming in) and welcomed more than 200 guests through our doors to admire the incredible talents of our team and local artists who showcased a variety of mediums including drawings, paintings, prints, photography, engraved glass, sculptures and more.
The art, along with live music, good company and a delicious grazing table kept guests captivated in between raffles and the auction, which featured the beautiful painting ‘Wings of Freedom' by local artist Lara Accarias.
Phil Jackson, director of Guymer Bailey Architects, said:
