ARTISTS are be­ing en­cour­aged to get cre­ative and sub­mit en­tries into the an­nual City of Gosnells Com­mu­nity Art Ex­hi­bi­tion and Awards, with more than $10,000 in prize money.

The event gives emerg­ing and pro­fes­sional artists an op­por­tu­nity to show­case their tal­ents in a range of medi­ums.

City of Gosnells Mayor Ol­wen Searle said this was a great op­por­tu­nity for artists to be recog­nised, win cash or have their art­work se­lected as the over­all win­ning en­try, which would be ac­quired for the City’s col­lec­tion. The judg­ing will be held on May 4, fol­lowed by a com­mu­nity ex­hi­bi­tion from May 5-12.

This year’s award and ex­hi­bi­tion will fea­ture the new craft cat­e­gories of Wood­turn­ing, Mo­saics and Pot­tery and a Craft Trail to be dis­played across sev­eral lo­ca­tions, in­clud­ing The Ago­nis (Gosnells), Amherst Vil­lage Li­brary (Can­ning Vale), Mills Park Cen­tre (Beck­en­ham) and the Don Russell Per­form­ing Arts Cen­tre (Thorn­lie).

The 2017 Com­mu­nity Art and Ex­hi­bi­tion Awards also in­clude an Over­all Award (Ac­quis­i­tive), which of­fers a $5000 cash prize.

Win­ners will be an­nounced on Sat­ur­day, May 6.
