Gallery Profile: Aspire Gallery
I have spent many hours as an artist googling galleries on how to apply for an exhibition, who the gallery director/s are and if the floor space is a good fit for an idea or concept I might have had brewing in my mind. Paper Bou will be profiling galleries throughout Queensland during 2018 for your convenience... you're welcome :)
Aspire Gallery is a gallery I have exhibited at regularly in either group, joint or competition-led shows. I find working with Donna and Lindsay Mengel (a Mother and Son team) enjoyable, they are friendly, helpful and only want your exhibition to be the best it can be. I am a big communication person, and I love how they respond to any questions via email promptly and professionally - I highly recommend working with the people that make up their family-run business. They also sell handmade gift ware by local and interstate artists - so it is a great go to place when you want to spoil yourself or a loved one with something unique.
