Motivated by her own practice of creating art inspired by local Orange region landscapes, Curator and Gallery Director Madeline Young is seeking to explore and celebrate the regions and landscapes that inspire other artists across Australia. The bi-annual Corner Store Gallery Regional Landscape Prize aims to foster established and emerging creative talent in regional Australia, and will showcase regional, rural and outback Australia in all its brilliant and beautiful glory.
There are two prizes up for grabs:
- Major Prize: $5000 cash prize, courtesy of Source Architects, and the opportunity to join our stable of artists, awarded to the overall winner of the competition.
- Artists Residency: A two-week residency, at Quest Orange in 2023, to complete a body of work inspired by the Orange landscape. The final body of work will be exhibited at The Corner Store Gallery once completed and they have the opportunity to join our stable of artists. Some residency expenses will be covered courtesy of Arts OutWest Country Arts Support Program. This prize will be awarded to a finalist who demonstrates exceptional promise and who may best benefit from the opportunity. This finalist may or may not be the same artist as the Major Prize winner.
