Everything Grows, Anything Goes
Dunmore Gallery Toowoomba (DMGT) is calling for entries from local artists for the upcoming group exhibition Everything Grows; Anything Goes. Scheduled for Friday 31st May 2019, the exhibition will present works responding to plants, trees, flowers and the concept of growth and what that looks like moving forward into an uncertain global climate. Everything Grows; Anything Goes will be inclusive of diverse creative styles and practices, not limited by any medium or creative practice. Dunmore Gallery will accept works not often displayed in gallery spaces. Artists, makers and growers may either submit traditional works (conceptually or literally responding to the theme), or “non-art” objects - anything goes!
