Come along for a celebration of a brand new local studio and gallery, showcasing rising, unknown and established artists. The brainchild of Burleigh-based practising artist and graphic designer, Tania Blanchard, TBC is a studio space that doubles as an informal yet elegant gallery – and Tania couldn’t be more excited to share it with other artists. Her vision? To create a space that will give artists, and particularly emerging artists, the opportunity to exhibit their work. Having enjoyed success in her own career – in such magazines as ‘Home Beautiful’ and ‘Queensland Homes’ and on a little TV show called ‘The Block’ – Tania is passionate about giving back to the community, and assisting others by providing a gallery space that is accessible and affordable.

To celebrate her new venture, Tania is excited to announce a collaborative, week-long show celebrating works from a variety of new, unknown and established artists. Think a colourful, contemporary mix of abstract, pop and urban art that perfectly complements Tania’s own works – with their signature layering of ‘impasto dots’ that create unique texture, depth and vibrancy.

The TBC space lends itself to large pieces, and Tania has put the call out to artists keen to exhibit their work for the duration of the display (November 24 through to December 1). There will be no commission taken on the opening exhibition – it’s simply about encouraging the sale of artworks and putting money into the artists’ paint-covered pockets.

When // Saturday November 24 from 5pm ‘til 7pm
Where // Tania Blanchard Creative, West Burleigh Road, Burleigh Heads

Visitors hoping to come along will love the diverse collection of artworks, as well as the live music, food truck and so much more. For more info, head to www.taniablanchardcreative.com.
