EMERGING artists have the chance to expand their skills through three opportunities on offer at Contemporary Art Spaces Mandurah.

CASM features nine exhibitions a year and during the 2016-2017 exhibition period, showed 17 artists in textiles, sculpture, ceramics, installation, drawing, printmaking, painting and jewellery.

Applications are now open for the annual Exhibition Program, the Arts Residency Program and the Tiny Treasures Christmas artists sales exhibition.

The Exhibition Application program encourages emerging artists to apply for exhibition space and each exhibition runs over four weekends.

The Studio Residency program offers the chance for two artists to use onsite studio spaces to research and develop a new body of work.

Applications are also open for inclusion in the Tiny Treasurers sale that requires artists to create original high quality artworks no larger than 30x30x30 to a value of $300 or less.

Terms, conditions and applications forms can be found at www.artspacesmandurah.com.au.
