The Toyota Community Spirit Gallery is calling for submissions from emerging artists to
exhibit in our Emerging Artist exhibition in March 2011.
A broad range of contemporary and traditional works across all mediums is sought from
artists from diverse social and cultural backgrounds. The focus is on local artists
from the cities of Port Phillip and Hobsons Bay but the program is also open
to regional and interstate artists.
There is no cost to exhibit and no commission charged on sales of work.
Established in 2004, the Gallery runs a continuous program of exhibitions
at Toyotas corporate headquarters in Port Melbourne and has shown the works of over 590 artists.
Successful applicants are eligible to apply for the $10,000 Toyota Community Spirit Artist Travel Award.

(2) Application Document (word doc 92KB :

Applications close 7 February 2011.

Poly Gallery is taking submissions for our January show called ‘Boy Meets Girl’.
This show is about gender. Artists exploring their own concept of gender
in a gender obsessed society.
How do you see yourself reflected in a world where gender is black and white?
How you see yourself when the limitations
of the world around you are stripped away?
If you are keen to be a part of this show email me at
The show will run from first week of January 2011 until early February. Artworks of
any medium are considered.
Previous shows have earnt many of the artists further opportunities for exhibiting
and media. Exhibiting in a group show is a great way
to show your work to a wider audience at a lower cost than a solo show
Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.
