The Coffs Coast Art Prize 2018 and Exhibition opens Friday 13th July at 6.30pm. Join us to celebrate with the winners of the Major award, Youth Art Award and cast your vote for the People’s Choice Award which will be announced at the end of the exhibition.
Coffs Coast is blessed with many things and one of them is a large community of talented artists committed to their practice.
The Coffs Coast Art Prize is a great opportunity to bring their diverse take on life and landscape to the community and vie for one of the three awards totalling $2300.
When the Coffs Harbour Arts Council approached the Bunker Cartoon Gallery with a view to holding the exhibition a quick decision to take a space made available by the sudden cancellation of another event was made.
Although it was sooner than expected this worked well for both organisations and the support the Bunker has given throughout the process has been invaluable. It is a great facility and we are fortunate to have it.
Chris Hazell has generously donated a painting which will be raffled as part of fund raising efforts for the event. Chris has a unique take on life and her work is always well received.
The Coffs Harbour Arts Council is grateful to the Bunker, the Advocate, the Book Warehouse, the Art Factory and to Chris Hazell for their generous contributions to the exhibition. Without community support events of this nature would not be possible.
We are excited to be presenting the exhibition and we look forward to seeing you all there.
Competition Opens 13th July until 3rd August 2018
