Entry form for artists
This year the Harden Murrumburrah Arts Council presents their 25th Annual Art Exhibition and Sale at the Old Murrumburrah Court House.
It has been a very big year with the Court House undergoing extensive renovations and improvements in the way of a new bathroom, window blinds, painting and advanced gallery lighting and hanging system. We are very, very grateful to Nina Horton who has been overseeing all the work. We now have a fabulous looking art space ready to showcase your art work. We hope you have been painting as we are looking for lots of entries to celebrate our 25th annual show. We also thank our sponsors for their generous donations, especially the Kruger Trust. Once again we are able to offer $1000 for the most outstanding painting.
Please find below this year’s entry form. You are welcome to share this entry form and pass it on to any other artists who may be interested in entering. When printing your form, please select landscape orientation. If you would prefer to send your entries by email, please include a printed copy of the entry form in an envelope with your entry fee when you deliver your paintings. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to call Therese Crowe or La Reine Beal (our numbers are on the entry form).
Last Wednesday (12th April) VASY members car pooled and enjoyed a great day out at the Tumut Art Society’s 60th Annual Art Exhibition.
Our first stop was the Long Track Pantry at Jugiong and while there discovered some fabulous new mixed media work by local artist Stephanie Corkhill-Hyles. Of course, our morning coffee and chatting was enjoyable as well.
Travelling onto Tumut we met up with the President of the Tumut Art Society, Glenyce Francis, and a band of member volunteers. They have worked extremely hard over many months to pull such a professional exhibition together.
Art notables and winners included Steve Underwood, Ann Rayment, Kasey Sealy, John Sharman, Don Talintyre, Janis Lawler, Bob Gurney and Julie Simmons to name a few.
Apart from traditional art works on display we also admired Fibre Art and a Small Painting section. Bev Dennis’ painting using pointilist technique won the Local Artist Encouragement Award.
We were all very envious of the Art Society’s multi use building. How fabulous to own your own space to use for classes, exhibitions and meetings! Glenyce explained that the building has grown in stages since the early Snowy Mountains Scheme era. Resident art tutor Jennifer Forster also took time to chat to us about the Society’s art program and week to week ‘doings’. We all went away enthusiastic to return again next year.
To catch the exhibition and highlights go to www.tumutart.com.au . The exhibition continues until 1pm on Sunday 23rd April and is really worth a visit.
