Every year the major art galleries across the Western Downs come together and host the Annual Western Downs Regional Artists’ Exhibition. It is a space to showcase Western Downs artists, and helps them to raise their profiles beyond the regions borders.

Total prize money of the competition is an amazing $2150, and all paintings are available for sale during the exhibition.

This year, artists are encouraged to explore the values of light and shade, any subject, with no limits – no light, low light, directional light, 2D or 3D work. The possibilities are endless, monochromatic or a myriad of colours.

Artists may submit up to four artworks.

Each work must be accompanied by a completed entry form.

Submitted works will be selected by the exhibition curator, who will also award the prizes.

All artists who submit work will be represented in the curator’s exhibition selection.

A full colour, professionally-presented exhibition catalogue will document the exhibition and include a curatorial essay.

Entries must be received by Monday 2 July
Fees $25 per entry (non-refundable)

Opening Night and Presentation of Prizes from 5.30pm on Saturday 22nd September at Lapunyah Art Gallery, Chinchilla.
