Warrandyte Art Show
"A heritage steeped in art"
New Category of Emerging Artist.
Three awards of $750 awarded by the judge as a reflection of the value of emerging artists within the exhibition.
The organizers have defined an emerging artist as a painter who has yet to win a major award and is still working and learning with a recognized art teacher.
There is no age constraint.
A selection of art teachers will be approached to nominate potential candidates for these awards.
In this inaugural establishment of the award, nominations will be limited to around 25 invited artists.
A small committee will evaluate the nominations and Invited Artists will be required to enter 3 works,
Many of the invited artists for this category will have previously exhibited in this and other exhibitions. A variety of styles and approaches to painting will be considered and selection of artists will present an exciting and varied selection of emerging artists.
The Rotary Club look forward to the support and commentary for this new addition to the Art Show.
Artist and Teachers interested in supporting this award may like to email the selection committee with potential nominations. email: firstname.lastname@example.org
