Finishing Touches to Grammar Art Show26th March 2021
The finishing touches are being put on one of Australia’s finest Art Shows. The 28th annual Grammar Art Show will showcase a diverse range of paintings, sculptures and jewellery, more than 1200 pieces from 250 artists.
The Grammar Art Show has become such a prestigious exhibition that artists from all over Australia nominate their work months before the Show and, unfortunately, many don’t make the final cut.
Last year the COVID lockdown prevented the show from being held in its normal format, so organisers went online and pieces were sold world-wide, resulting in a record sale figure of over $190,000.
Due to the success of the online component, this year’s Art Show will be both mediums, online and “on the ground.”
This year’s Feature Artist is Brisbane-based, Mel Simmonds who says she doesn’t like to label her style as it curbs her creativity. She is ‘ever evolving’, showcasing loads of colour and likes to start with a photo or memory and let the painting direct her.
The Grammar Art Show isn’t just an exhibition, it’s a month-long festival of art, including the Art Trail, which provides a sneak peek of works at various locations around Toowoomba from March 1-23 and an exciting new event to be launched this year, Art Among Friends on Saturday, 27 March.
Opening night is on Friday, 26 March which has already sold out, but there are plenty of opportunities for people to view the Grammar Art Show from 10:00am-5:00pm on Saturday, 27 March or from 10:00am-4:00pm on Sunday, 28 March.
High Tea sessions were sold out within twenty minutes of tickets going on sale, but a beautiful pop-up coffee shop will be operating for people to sit back and relax with friends.
And of course, you can enjoy the Show and purchase pieces from the comfort of your home via grammarartshow.com
