Peter was thrilled to receive commendations for both of his paintings entered in the Art From The Margins (AFTM) Exhibition this year. The official launch was held on September 15th at the Brisbane Institute of Art in Windsor, Brisbane and the awards were presented on 20th September at the Albert Street Uniting Church.

Peter had two paintings and a sculpture in the exhibition.

Art From The Margins (AFTM) is an initiative of Wesley Mission Brisbane (WMB) and seeks to support artists whose creative opportunities and development are limited by homelessness, disability, disadvantage or isolation. This was their fifth free exhibition, which runs annually as part of the Brisbane Festival.

Peter has been a regular exhibitor since 2010 and three of his works are part of AFTM’s permanent collection.
