Calleen Art Award 2021

Sun 31 October 2021, - Sun 5 December 2021,

“The Calleen” was established in 1977 as an acquisitive art prize by Mrs Patricia Fagan OAM with a focus on painting and supporting innovation, creativity and originality in the visual arts. Open to artists across Australia this year the Gallery received 407 entries and 46 artists have been shortlisted as finalists.

The winner of the Calleen Art Award 2021 will receive $25,000 in prize money made possible by the generous support of the Calleen Trust and the winning work will become part of the splendid Calleen Collection at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery. There is also a People’s Choice Award worth $1,000 announced at the end of the exhibition.


During these uncertain times of COVID -19 restrictions we recommend checking the Gallery website for regular updates and information about the Calleen Art Award 2021 exhibition.
