The 2021 Hawkesbury Art Prize is a non-acquisitive award of $10,000. Two highly commended prizes of $1,000 are also awarded (one to Hawkesbury resident). 2 x 2 week art residencies at Glenhuntly Estate, Kurrajong, NSW. Packers Prize $500 and minor prizes.
The art prize is for a painting or collage that is inspired by contemporary Australia or contemporary Australian identity. It has been set up as a not for profit project administered by volunteers and Purple Noon Gallery, in association with Patron, Maggie Scott. Three judges will select the award winners.
The aim of the Hawkesbury Art Prize is to promote art in the Hawkesbury region and across Australia, and increase awareness of art and cultural activity, to the mutual benefit of community, artists and students. In past years profits have led to the establishment of a financial scholarship for talented and deserving young artists in the region.
