Darebin Council is calling on all artists who live, work or study in our city to submit a two-dimensional artwork for the A1 Darebin Art Salon exhibition at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre.
Darebin Mayor Cr Kim Le Cerf said the exhibition – being held for a second time after its successful inaugural event two years ago – is a celebration of the creative talent in Darebin.
“We are an immensely creative community,” the Mayor said. “The Art Salon is a wonderful opportunity for emerging and established artists of all ages and backgrounds to showcase their work.”
Apart from receiving exposure in the community, one winning artist will be given an opportunity to hold a solo exhibition at Bundoora Homestead Art Centre. A second will receive the People’s Choice Award.
“I encourage local artists to enter their work,” Cr Le Cerf said. “They can use any media, from works on paper, painting and anything that can be hung on the gallery’s walls, from mosaics to tapestries, so long as it doesn’t exceed the size of A1.”
The judging panel for the competition will be artist Shannon Smiley and Claire Watson, Senior Curator at the Homestead.
Submissions close on Thursday 5 July at 5pm. Visit www.bundoorahomestead.com for more information or call 9496 1060.
