UP CLOSE online exhibition to keep local creatives inspired

Feeling isolated? Need some creative inspiration on these socially isolated days? We’ve got some good news for you.

UP CLOSE is Griffith Regional Art Gallery’s first online community exhibition.

In the spirit of sticking together while staying apart, this exhibition will be hosted online and anyone will be able to participate.

This exhibition invites locals of all ages to create a photographic portrait of someone who is sharing their isolation.

With all the extra time on your hands why not use it to study the features and capture the unique characteristics of your loved ones, whether it’s your partner, kids, parents, grandparents, flat mates or even the family pet. Whoever makes you feel connected when we are separated from so much. You can even create a ZOOM portrait of someone you share time with online.

This exhibition allows local people to create, showcase and view photographic art in our community while still practicing social distancing. Explore some photographic elements and make some seriously creative images, or some just-for-fun portraits of your lockdown buddies. All ages are welcome to participate.
