So many SQUARES so many ideas!

Squares Exhibition 2015


Last Sunday saw the 2015 8th Annual SQUARES Exhibition open at Steathnairn Arts Gallery, Holt, Canberra. Each year I wait with anticipation to see what the local artists have managed to express on a 12″ square canvas, and this year doesn’t disappoint.

This year for the first time, the Woolshed has been transformed into a gorgeous Gallery Space, which has housed the nearly 100 entries. There truly is something for everyone here, from abstract to portrait, figurative to still life, entries with components of pottery – all hand made – mosaic to works on paper.


If you have a child interested in the arts this is a great introduction into the world of Art Exhibitions as there is a Children’s Category as well.
