Closes 29 July 2022. Call for entries are now open for the Basil Sellers Art Prize, a biennial competition celebrating classic artistic excellence in 2D artworks. The art prize champions artists working in traditional mediums of painting, drawing or unique state printmaking.

Housed in the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre (the Bas) on the far South Coast of NSW the prize has increased its reach in 2022 to include artists from across Australia.  As a regional exhibition centre, we understand that artistic excellence can be found in a variety of places so artists from all parts of the country – capital cities to country towns alike, are encouraged to enter.

The Basil Sellers Art Prize call for entries closes on July 29, 2022. The finalist exhibition opens with the announcement of the winners Friday 7 October and runs until Sunday 20 November 2022
