Mitchell Shire Council is set to showcase the extraordinary talent of local artists at the hArt24 exhibition, an event that celebrates the works of youth and adult artists living, working, or connected to the shire.

Artists can submit up to two works in a variety of mediums including digital, projections, painting, drawing, mixed media, ceramics, small sculptures, photography, textiles, and jewellery. Both two-dimensional and three-dimensional works will be accepted.

First prize at last year’s exhibition was awarded to Priscilla Indichnavon for her mixed media piece. She said the exhibition was a fantastic opportunity for local artists to showcase their work.

“The setup of the exhibition was fantastic, ensuring each piece was showcased to its best advantage. I encourage artists to embrace their passion and don’t shy away from creating a larger, bold piece because they can be incredibly fulfilling. I’m keen to see the array of unique and captivating works this year. This exhibition is a remarkable showcase of the varied artistic expressions within our community,” Ms Indichnavon said.

Mitchell Shire Mayor Councillor Louise Bannister said the array of creativity displayed by artists was always remarkable.

“Creativity is evident throughout Mitchell Shire, from local markets and galleries to public exhibitions, and even on the walls of cafes and gathering spaces. The hArt24 exhibition is a pivotal event that highlights this diversity Cr Bannister said.

Categories and prizes include ‘Open Age’, with a first prize of $500 and a highly commended prize of $300. ‘Youth Artist’ (12-24 years) features two highly commended prizes of a $300 arts material gift voucher.

This year’s exhibition also introduces a new category for First Nations artists, with a $300 cash prize in the ‘Open Age’ category, and a $300 arts material gift voucher in the ‘Youth Artist’ category. Applications close at 5pm Sunday, June 23.

Prizes will be announced at the opening night event on Friday, July 26 from 6pm-8pm. The exhibition runs from Friday, July 26 to Sunday, August 4 from 10am4pm at the Broadford Hall, 113 High Street, Broadford.
