Applications close 19 April and 19 October each year.
Umbrella Studio invites exhibition proposals from established and emerging contemporary visual artists and curators seeking to present new and original work in a professional gallery environment. Umbrella Studio operates four exhibition spaces: the Main Space, Access Space, the Vault and the Stairway. Different terms and conditions apply for the use of each of these spaces.
The Main Space offers a large gallery/exhibition space within Umbrella Studio for the presentation of significant contemporary visual arts exhibitions and events.
The Access Space offers a smaller exhibition space for emerging contemporary visual artists, particularly those seeking their first solo or group exhibition experience in a professional gallery environment. It is also suited to established artists seeking to exhibit experimental artforms.
The Vault is especially suited to Audio/Visual and installation works.
The stairwell is an interesting space and unusual space to hang art. The challenge of creating works that fills the volume of the space is best represented. Some outstanding works have been installed in the stairwell over the past few years, so if you have an idea for an installation download an application form. If you want to discuss your ideas please contact me.
Umbrella Studio acknowledges the financial support of: The Queensland Government, through Arts Queensland, the Commonwealth Government through the Australia Council, its arts funding and advisory body, and the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments.
