COVID-19 Update #2

As we had in anticipated, and in line with both the Government’s advice last night and growing concerns nationally, we will temporarily be closing our physical gallery to the public to do our bit to flatten the curve.

Over the past week, the Aspire team has been hard at work preparing some very exciting things for our artists and followers alike.

The beautiful ‘A Florist’s Delight’ Competition & Exhibition will now be run virtually and extended for an extra two weeks online until the 19th April 2020!

We will continue to post Guided Tours of the physical exhibition and regular updates (stay tuned, I just filmed another today!), to bring as much of the exhibition into our followers’ homes as possible. The public is still welcome to purchase from our Online Catalogue of Works, with the option for us to store the work temporarily or arrange delivery to the comfort of your home.

Rumour has it that we’ll also be introducing a Voters Choice option online, so that you can all get involved from home!

Exhibiting artists of ‘A Florist’s Delight’ were emailed this morning – so we encourage those exhibiting to read that email carefully for any the changes and some requests!

In other news, we are excited to announce our next competition coming up in May will now be ?????? (with discounted entry fees!).

Rather than focus on Brisbane scenes specifically as planned, we thought we’d open the exhibition to all Australian artists. So now more than ever, the newly titled ‘Scenes of our Streets’ Competition is the perfect theme to help bring the outside into everyone’s homes.

As well as our ordinary Online Catalogue (with our brilliant new shopping cart), we have big plans – including a virtual gallery, as much digital interaction with our exhibiting artists as possible, a Voters’ Choice Prize and more!

The work of our Managed Artists will still be available through our website should you be interested in purchasing anything. As mentioned, purchased work can be stored temporarily, or we will be offering zero contact collection or delivery right to your front door.

We have also got some exciting new website releases coming up including three artists you may be familiar with – Andrew Sewell, Nick Kohler & Cam Power.

We have been in touch with any recent purchases or artwork collections, detailing our ‘No Contact’ Collection Process. Any paid return postage of work will also still be completed this week.

As we’ll be occasionally working from home, rather than the gallery, there may be a small delay in any phone enquiries. So we encourage you to send any questions, enquiries or concerns through Facebook or to If we haven’t responded within three days, please feel free to follow up!

We’d like to thank all of you for your support over these changing times. Please stay safe, stay in contact digitally, and we hope to see you all back in person very soon!
