Art for Art’s Sake Exhibition


We want your masterpieces.

We invite all people with a disability or mental illness to be involved and start creating for next year’s Art for Art’s Sake Exhibition.


Adjusting to a disability requires adapting to a lifestyle, it isn’t a case of being brave or courageous, but being prepared to face life and all it has to offer. People with disabilities go to school, get married, have families, laugh, cry just like everyone else. What is courage is facing the challenges and doing it anyway.

Creativity takes courage. It is about having faith in oneself, to leave one’s comfort zone and try something new.

“The effort to see things without distortion takes something like courage and this courage is essential to the artist, who has to look at everything as though he saw it for the first time.” Henri Matisse

The annual Art for Art’s Sake exhibition, though focused on artists with disabilities, (including mental health concerns), this year reflects on the courage of being people who just happen to have a disability, and their courage to express themselves as an artist.


Entry Forms can be collected from the Mitchell on Maranoa Gallery/Library. Also on this Facebook page or downloaded from our website HOME | Mitchell Art Gallery (
