Time is running out to enter the inaugural Cabonne Acquisitive Art Prize, which offers a total of $6,000 in prizemoney to Cabonne artists young and old. Entries close at 5pm tomorrow, Friday 24 January 2020.
The winner of the major award, the Cabonne Acquisitive Art Prize, will receive $4,250, while a People’s Choice award will be worth $1,000. There will also be $500 for the winning high school entry and $250 for a primary school prize.
With the major prizemoney, Cabonne Council will purchase the winning artwork each year. The aim is to enrich the arts in the Shire and enable the Council to acquire a collection of quality artworks.
The art prize is open to any person living, working or attending school in the Cabonne Local Government Area or who has attended a school in the Shire.
The inaugural exhibition will be held in Molong from 14-21 March 2020, with the official opening and announcement of the winning works taking place on 19 March 2020.
