This year I was fortunate to again support the City of South Perth’s Emerging Artist competition.This year there were 91 artworks on show of a very high standard. It is great to see the competition evolve into a recognised exhibition for local emerging artists.
Congratulations to Lydia Tretheway for winning the $500 John McGrath MLA Young Artist Award. Her artwork ‘Passing the Invisable’ was of a very high quality.
The Exhibition will remain open to the public until Saturday 31 October. Members of the public can purchase a piece of their own, as well as vote on their favourite piece to be awarded the Soco Realty People’s Choice Award post exhibition.
Are you a budding artist? Celebrating its 13th year, the 2015 Emerging Artist Award presented by Brierty is now open for registrations and will close at 5pm, Friday 18 September 2015.
The Award provides upcoming artists and arts students with the opportunity to exhibit their work to the wider South Perth community, as well as a chance to share in $7,000 worth of prizes! Limited to one entry per artist, artworks can be 2D, such as paintings or photography, or 3D, such as sculpture.
