DEADLINE : 21st June, 2013
The Wilson Visual Arts Award is an acquisitive art prize and exhibition in its second year. It is open to Australian artists over 16 and to all forms of visual arts media.
The Wilson is organised under a committee composed of working artists and art enthusiasts. Drawn together by our vision to increase cultural opportunities in Lismore, our stated purpose is to promote and celebrate the vibrant arts and cultural precinct in Lismore and the Northern Rivers’ through the encouragement of knowledge, appreciation and practice of contemporary visual arts.
Importantly, The Wilson Visual Arts Award offers all members of the community, as well as school students of all ages, an opportunity to mix with artists. This interaction will enable them to appreciate and explore visual arts as an important means of self-expression.
Our vision is that the Wilson Visual Arts Award will become one of the Northern Rivers region of NSW most anticipated and celebrated cultural events; engaging with a large cross-section of the community, reinforcing the educative role of the arts in the student body and drawing visitors to experience the beauty and vibrancy of our region.
