Annual Art Prize

By Corowa Free Press

The revamped Fed Art Prize is set to commence, with the exhibition opening at 5.30pm on Friday, October 18.

This year the exhibition, held at Corowa Memorial Hall, sees a change in date from October 18 until November 5 – to coincide with the ever-popular Baldy Archy Exhibition.

The last exhibition saw in excess of 700 visitors through the doors. 103 artists exhibited work, 392 artworks were shown and prize money of $7500.00 was awarded. More than 100 guests attended the opening night alone. 

With new energy, new prize category structures and a new identity, the organising committee is expecting the largest show yet. 

The Gala Opening on October 18 will see one lucky visitor take home a door prize of either one night’s accommodation for two at the prestigious Circa 1928, Albury, or a selection of wines from St. Leonards Vineyard, Wahgunyah. 

The committee would like to thank platinum sponsors Federation Council, St. Leonards Vineyard, Circa 1928 and other local sponsors for their support.

There will be complimentary wines by St Leonards Vineyard, performances by local musicians and a grazing table by Green Bean

The exhibition opens at 5:30pm with awards announcements at 7pm. Show closes 8pm

More information is on the website – tickets can be purchased online or on the door for $15.
