Local artists are being asked to submit proposals for the fourth Commercial Alley installation.

Located between the 500 block of Yates Street and Bastion Square, the outdoor gallery adds to the vitality of the area while retaining its use by local businesses.

The first installation by renowned street artist Other, aka Troy Lovegates, depicts portraits of a wizened face as rough and aged as the surfaces they appear on.

The fourth installment will be on display from August 2016 to August 2017 and launched during the Integrate Arts Festival. The artwork will be presented as a series of four, 1.2-metre by 2.4 metre panels.

Artists are invited to learn more at a proposal writing workshop on Saturday, March 5 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Open Space, located on the second floor of 510 Fort Street.
