$2000 to lure artists
A NEW section at the upcoming Mt Perry Art Exhibition will encourage visitors to paint a local identity, building, landmark or landscape.
A donation by Evolution Mining has enabled Mt Perry Fine Arts Group to offer its biggest cash prize ever in an effort to attract professional artists to the region, with $2000 up for the taking as part of the new section.
An exhibition organiser said this year celebrated the 20th annual exhibition – a major milestone that had been made more prominent by the inclusion of the new section, which offered $1500 for the winner and a further $500 prize set aside exclusively for local artists.
