The 2020 Goulburn Art Award is open for online submissions until 5pm, Friday 6 March 2020 and is available to artists living within a 120km radius of Goulburn working across any medium. Two categories are open: the Goulburn Art Award and the Young Artist Award.
The 2020 edition welcomes Karen Quinlan AM, Director of the National Portrait Gallery as judge. Quinlan has been the Director of the National Portrait Gallery since December 2018 after an incredible eighteen years as Director of Bendigo Art Gallery. She is one of the most respected and innovative arts leaders in Australia and will lend an exceptional eye to this Art Award.
The winners will be announced on opening night, Friday 17 April with cash prizes awarded. The winner of the 2018 Goulburn Art Award was photographer Mark Kelly, whose subsequent series ‘Ghosts of the Past’ was exhibited in the Gallery in 2019. Winner of the 2018 Young Artist Award was Cooper Pearce, and Birte Larson was awarded Highly Commended.
The Gallery encourages submissions from artists at all stages of their careers, and an open day will be held on 17 February for anyone needs assistance with their application. Share with your local artists and make this our biggest yet Goulburn!
