Can you believe how quickly it’s come around again? … We are calling for entries for the 2016 Advocate Art Award held again at Araluen Art Centre.
Membership of our society isn’t necessary but we wish to make it attractive for you to take an annual membership: a lower entry fee and particularly a lower commission on sale of your work. We need you to succeed and achieve a sale! It works for us both and offsets considerable expenses that we incur. All entries must be for sale, however listing a selling price way above market value in order to avoid a sale is discouraged. Please respect our situation. The other Entry Rules are described at the application page (read down)
Applications may be paper based or (preferably) electronic. All details are under the Advocate Art Award TAB above. Pull down & click the 2016 Advocate Art Award drop-down. Or click this link: Advocate Art Award 2016
The exhibition opened last Friday. Another great success we believe.
Excellence Prize winner – Dan Murphy
The winner of The Excellence Prize for 2015 is Dan Murphy with his Photographic print on canvas. Many thanks to Chapman & Bailey for sponsoring the $2500 prize.
Senior Custodian Doris Kngwarraye Stuart is depicted in the artwork by Dan. See our Facebook page for images showing how Dan constructed his winning entry. (Now uploaded.)
Don’t forget to visit and cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award. One lucky voter will win the ‘Special Voter’s Prize’ painting displayed as you enter the gallery. It is kindly donated by Papaya Tula Artists.
You are invited to ‘The Walk in the Art’ on Sunday 9th August, 2-3PM when the People’s Choice is announced and the ‘Special Voter’s Prize’ is drawn.
