Great news! Congratulations to two of our artists, Tanya Darl and Belinda Peel, who have been selected to display their work at the Paralym Art World Cup 2018 in Tokyo this August. Tanya and Belinda, who are both members of the Brisbane Outsider Artists’ Studio, received the highest scoring among applicants from Australia.
The Paralym Art World Cup is a contest like no other, where people with disabilities from around the world come together to show off their artistic talents. In preparation for the Tokyo Olympic/ Paralympic Games in 2020, the organisers of the Paralym Art World Cup will set a different theme for each year for the artworks submitted from all across the globe. This year’s theme is ‘celebration’.
This is a great achievement and has caused some excitement at Access Arts as we prepare to send the two paintings over to Japan. The artwork will be displayed at the exhibition in Tokyo and will also be featured in the contest booklet and website.
We’re so proud of both of them!
