The Matamata Society of Arts Inc is holding its annual art exhibition in October and are seeking entries for their popular art competition.
This years theme ‘Seen On A Journey’ is a multi media art competition, with a prize of $100 awarded to the winner. The competition is part of the big Society of Arts Inc Annual Exhibition held from October 14-16 at the Matamata Memorial Centre.
Matamata Society of Arts Inc president Margaret Dwyer says about 50 entries have been received in previous years competitions, with 80 to 100 people visiting the exhibitions over it’s two days.
She says in the past the competition has attracted artists from as far away as KatiKati and Opotiki, with entries received from teenagers and adults.
Dwyer says this will be the last year the exhibition will be held at the Matamata Memorial Centre, as by this time next year construction will have begun on the new civic centre. It is unknown at this stage where the event will be held next year.
‘‘It’s been a very good venue and we have enjoyed having our exhibition there,’’ she says.
Entries for the art competition must be received by September 30.
