Gallery Guide: Our Favourite Five

Gallery Guide: Our Favourite Five

| On 07, Oct 2014

Move over Melbourne and sit back Sydney, your little brother Brisbane is abundantly buzzing with its own art scene.

Often overlooked as a creative hub, Brisbane does indeed have a lot to offer when it comes to galleries featuring a plethora of local and emerging artists. While I’m sure most have visited one of the many blockbusters the GoMA has seen in recent years…and boy have they been blockbusters; Picasso, Valentino & Warhol among others, we’ve compiled a list of love for five Brisbane galleries. While they may not encapsulate with the white cube effect of GoMA, these cute counterparts are worth a look for all those interested in art.

REDSEA Gallery

Representing local and international artists from Australia, Europe, Vietnam and Indonesia, REDSEA gallery, located on James St offers opportunities of inspiration and discovery of modern and contemporary art.

With Frequently changing exhibitions and free admission, a wander around this architecturally designed space is well worth the time.
