COSSAG is one of my favourite religious acronyms providing a two syllable sound for the Cathedral of St Stephen Art Group. This extraordinary group have quietly been  building a professional reputation in Brisbane  as curators and exhibitors for  local and International artisans. 

As well as the exhibitions and public talks, the group have a strong commitment to Fair Trade ethics which gives a cutting edge to their work.

For the first event in 2012 the Cathedral of St Stephen Art Group (COSSAG) invites professional and amateur artists to exhibit and sell in the annual Cycle of Life Lenten Art Exhibition, 2013 from 9am to 5pm, Saturday 16th March until Monday 18th March. Two prizes each for $1000 will be offered for the art work that is judged as being of the highest quality relating to the theme,


This theme is inspired by the YEAR OF GRACE being marked by Australian Catholics from Pentecost 2012 to Pentecost 2013.

One $1000 prize will be offered for work that uses recycled materials with originality and skill.

The second $1000 prize will be on the same theme for work to be hung. The works may reflect a positive appreciation of earth gifts and an awareness of our responsibilities as we recycle, restore, heal and renew. It is not necessary to use a religious theme. COSSAG looks forward to exhibiting work that is thought provoking for our buyers and audience. Works are limited to 1 metre in size in all directions.
