Gwydir Art Show enters its 13th year

October 4, 2010

This year’s 13th Annual Gwydir Art Show on the 14, 15 and 16 October 2010 will look to build on the prestige of having won the Australia Day award for the best public event staged within Gwydir Shire for 2009.


Sponsorship from Gwydir Shire Council for the Open section has always been conditional upon it being an acquisitive prize – the winning artist receives the advertised prize money – $2000 this year – while the Shire assumes ownership of the winning entry that is then hung – along with earlier winning paintings at the Shire Office.


This year, for the very first time, all previous Open section winners will be publicly displayed at the art show. Patrons are therefore assured they will be viewing the best of the best and will get a rare opportunity to compare how the work of the current crop of artists stacks up against that of past winners.
