Garden Door, Eleanor Purseglove

Brunswick Street Gallery is pleased to invite you to submit work for our upcoming group exhibition, Sanctuary taking place from 1—18 August 2024.

Deadline for applications: 1 July, 9AM

Sanctuary, a haven amid life's tempests, beckons as both physical refuge and tranquil mindset. In this
exhibition, artists are invited to delve into the essence of sanctuary, safe spaces that encapsulate
warmth, healing, and profound self-acceptance.

Be they tangible abodes such as a home or physical space, a person of comfort, or the serene
landscapes of the mind–expressed through figurative or abstract means.

As we navigate through the depths of winter, this exhibition presents creations that resonate with the
yearning for solace and connection, inviting viewers to contemplate their own sanctuaries and take time
out of their busy lives for a moment of reflection and peace. Through diverse mediums and perspectives,
Sanctuary embraces the universal longing for a safe haven, a sanctuary where one finds comfort,
consolation, and a sense of belonging.
