    Calling all artists, art-lovers, philanthropists and inspiration-seekers! This Brisbane Festival, Art from the Margins (AFTM) will launch its fifth consecutive exhibition in the river city, in a mega showcase spanning two weeks.

    AFTM is an artistic initiative created by the Wesley Mission designed to showcase artwork in a safe space for artists who are disadvantaged by homelessness, disability or other obstacles. Successful entrants in AFTM have their work presented to the public and are able to retain one hundred per cent of the money from any of their artwork that is sold.

    There’s been a record interest in AFTM this year, and 2012 promises to showcase first time entrants as well as old favourites. Held at Albert Street Uniting Church, AFTM will once again put up powerful, honest, evocative and completely original work by Brisbane’s unsung artists. The exhibition is free, purchasing artwork is optional, and supporting local talent is just a happy plus.
