Cabonne Acquisitive Art Prize

Sat 27 March - Thu 8 April

Free entry

The Cabonne Acquisitive Art Prize is taking up residence at the Molong RSL from Saturday, 27 March for its annual exhibition and judging of the artworks.

The art prize, currently in its second year, aims to foster a sense of identity, pride and place in Cabonne, whilst encouraging and showcasing the high calibre of creative talent in the region. The artworks will be displayed at the Molong RSL from Saturday, 27 March to Thursday, 8 April.

Council is fortunate to be joined by two fantastic judges; Robert Stephens, the Director of the Aarwun Gallery in Canberra, will be judging the Cabonne Acquisitive Art Prize and local Orange artist, Joy Engelman will be judging the Primary and Secondary Cabonne Art Prizes.

People’s Choice voting will be open via in-person submission at the exhibition or online submission through the Cabonne Council website from 11am Saturday, 27 March. There is a cost of $2 per vote. The winner of the People’s Choice award will win $1000.

The winner of each category will be announced at an awards evening to be held on Thursday, 8 April. Due to COVID, this will be an invite only event. The award recipients will also be announced on Council’s website and social media channels on Friday, 9 April.

An exhibition catalogue will be available online on Council’s website from 5pm Thursday, 25 March 2021. A hard copy version will be available for purchase for a gold coin at the exhibition.
