This year Burleigh Brewing will award $5,000 to the overall BLA winner to progress the future of an emerging local artist! That’s 5k to create a showcase, visit Mona, invest in new supplies or even contribute to an art education!

So much to love and all in one night; 16 local artists, live art, music, gourmet food truck, giveaways, Burleigh Brewing beer and more! The countdown has begun.

BLA! 2018 is set for Saturday 13th of October and will showcase sculpture and fine art, typography and ceramics with live art. The brief given to artists is `Balance, Character & Soul’ and how an artist best relates this to the Gold Coast.

This year Burleigh Brewing will award $5,000 to the overall winner to progress the future of an emerging local artist! Vote for your most loved art piece on the night and give a local artist an opportunity they desire.

At Burleigh Brewing we want to generate exposure for local artists, engage and inspire our community with the vibrant art scene that exists here on the Gold Coast and enable you to get your hands on some unique, locally crafted artwork. And given the event is in a brewery, enjoy some amazing hand-crafted world class Burleigh Brewing beer while you’re at it.

BLA 2017 was a huge success, if you missed it, take a look at some of last year’s highlights here.
