In its third year running, Burleigh Brewing BLA! (Brewing Local Artists) exhibition event is set for Saturday October 13 from 3:00pm at Burleigh Brewing Taphouse in Burleigh Heads.
This year, Burleigh Brewing will award $5,000 to the overall BLA! winner to progress the future of an emerging local artist. That’s 5k to create a showcase, visit Mona, invest in new supplies or even contribute to an art education.
So much to love and all in one night: 16 local artists, live art, live music, gourmet food truck, giveaways, world class Burleigh Brewing craft beer and more.
The BLA! event will showcase sculpture and fine art, typography, photography and ceramics with live art.
The brief given to artists is ‘Balance, Character and Soul’ and how an artist best
relates this to the Gold Coast.
The brewery, now in its 12th year, continues to focus on creating world class craft beer yet takes the time to acknowledge and support talented local artists to achieve their art dream.
“At Burleigh Brewing we want to generate exposure for local artists, engage and inspire our community with the vibrant art scene that exists here on the Gold Coast and enable others to get their hands on some unique, locally crafted artwork,” Burleigh Owner Peta Fielding said.
“Burleigh Brewing creates its own masterpieces on a daily basis, so it’s great to bring some of the region’s best creatives together and celebrate their passions and achievements. And given the BLA event is in a brewery, enjoy some amazing hand-crafted world class Burleigh Brewing beer while they’re at it.”
A public vote complimented with a combined judging panel from Home of the Arts, Bleach and The Walls art space will decide the overall BLA! 2018 exhibition winner, who will also take home a uniquely created Burleigh Brewing golden grower to fill with their favourite brew to celebrate the win.
