tinygold Presents - Tales From The Cold Ghost

tinygold returns for its third year with the introduction of 26 emerging artists and an exciting new program! So when I heard about this event and read more about it I just had to share it.

Based on the Gold Coast, tinygold artist-run initiative returns this August for its third series of Tales from the Cold Ghost, an annual exhibition/event that focuses on emerging and regional Queensland artists.
This year there were over 80 applications from artists practising in various mediums of which 26 artists were selected to showcase there works. Among the artists selected are creatives such as Alex Chomicz, Simone Eisler, Carly Kotynski, Mel Stringer, Danielle Clej and Sue-Ching Lascelles.

The organisers promise a bigger program this year with the introduction of artist talks, an arts-networking day, fashion parade and a catalogue publication. This years event will take place again at 19 Karen Contemporary Artspace, which was transformed into a fully-function gallery in association with last year’s Cold Ghost show.

“Our aim is to create platforms for work development and exposure, and to encourage networking strategies between the community and local emerging artists.” - Megan, artist/artsworker
