The Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery and West Darling Arts invite Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists residing in the Far West region of NSW (Broken Hill City Council, Central Darling Shire Council, Wentworth Shire Council and the Unincorporated Area) to submit entries for the 2017 Far West Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Open Art Prize. Prizes will be awarded in five Categories – 2D, 3D, Peoples Choice, Encouragement Award and Young Artist Category (up to 18 years).
The aim of the prize is to provide an opportunity to showcase and celebrate art works and creativity in the Far West community by both young and mature Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. The prize will help to stimulate artists to create new work as well as providing a professional environment of a major regional art gallery for the exhibition and judging.
All art work is to be delivered to the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery by Friday 27th January, 2017. For further information, please contact West Darling Arts on 08 80879035 or the Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery on 08 80883440.
