Michelle Camp­bell, win­ner of the 2015 City of Bel­mont Ac­quis­i­tive Open Art Award, with Mayor Phil Marks out­side Ruth Faulkner Pub­lic Li­brary. TAL­ENTED artists and pho­tog­ra­phers from across WA will have their work show­cased as part of the City of Bel­mont’s 14th An­nual Art and Pho­to­graphic Awards.

The ex­hi­bi­tion was of­fi­cially opened at Ruth Faulkner Pub­lic Li­brary last Sun­day and has a prize pool of $14,400. It will be open to the pub­lic un­til July 30. “The awards not only pro­vide artists and pho­tog­ra­phers with the op­por­tu­nity to ex­press their cre­ativ­ity, in­no­va­tion and skill but also pro­vide us with a unique in­sight into their in­ter­pre­ta­tion of our cul­ture, en­vi­ron­ment and peo­ple,” Mayor Phil Marks said.

“At the City of Bel­mont, we are com­mit­ted to pro­vid­ing and sup­port­ing recre­ational and cul­tural op­por­tu­ni­ties for our res­i­dents, and the Art and Pho­to­graphic Ex­hi­bi­tion en­cour­ages lo­cal artists to show­case their work to the Bel­mont com­mu­nity.”
