Artists of all ages are invited to get creative and enter this year’s UneARThed art show in Gulgong.
Organised by the Gulgong Art Council, UneARThed is an art exhibition and competition that encourages artists from far and wide to showcase their talents to the region.
Entries will be displayed over the June long weekend (June 9-10) at Gulgong’s Memorial Hall as part of the Henry Lawson celebrations in Gulgong.
Competition categories range from pre-school age right through to adults with a variety of different mediums covered such as drawing, sculpture and handicraft.
This year new sections have been introduced including digital art for adults and high school students, and Big Hero and Little Hero comic drawing/story sections.
The Big Hero and Little Hero sections have been sponsored by K.I.T. Comics (Knife in Texas Comics – Darren Gallagher) and are open to school age children. It asks them to create their very own super hero character and write a brief story about why their super hero is so special.
There are some great prizes on offer in different categories including the generous ‘Clyde Oakley Memorial’ open prize of $1,000. This is for artwork created in any medium that interprets Henry Lawson, the person, his work or his life. This section does not have to be a portrait.
But don’t just enter for the great prizes on offer, the UneARThed art show provides a great way for local artists to gain exposure, particularly as there will be lots of visitors in Gulgong during the Henry Lawson Festival.
Entries for UneARThed close at midnight May 11th 2018. Exhibits are accepted Wednesday June 6th 2018 between 8am –2pm.
