AS­PIR­ING artists, it’s time to turn your cre­ativ­ity to craft­ing a won­der­ful wa­ter­melon-in­spired piece in time for the La­pun­yah Art Gallery Melon Fes­ti­val Art Com­pe­ti­tion.

The bi­en­nial event co­in­cides with the Chin­chilla Melon Fes­ti­val and gallery di­rec­tor He­len Den­nis said there were plenty of cat­e­gories to choose from.

“We try to cover all dis­ci­plines, so ev­ery­one has a chance to en­ter in their par­tic­u­lar choice of art or craft medium,” Mrs Den­nis said.

En­try is open not just to Chin­chilla or West­ern Downs res­i­dents, but any­one who wants to get in­volved.

“It’s a very pop­u­lar com­pe­ti­tion, we get quite a num­ber of en­tries each year and we’re open on Melon Fest Satur­day,” Mrs Den­nis said. “We’ve had up to 2000 peo­ple come through the doors.”

Cat­e­gories in­clude paint­ing, draw­ing, com­puter gen­er­ated, pho­tog­ra­phy, 3D art, ceram­ics/pot­tery, wood­work or me­tal­work, fi­bre arts, and youth.
