A $5000 Acquisitive Art Award – an inaugural Art Festival featuring Workshops, Talks, Exhibitions, Events &

Wild Valley Art Park in the Blue Mountains will launch a unique creative art festival in
September 2013 – Australia’s first Drawing Festival and Sketchbook Drawing Trail.
The Drawing Trail Festival Workshops include:
Masterclass – Distorted Point of View with David Fairbairn teaching participants to look beneath the
surface and structures inside our faces and bodies, such as veins, skeletons and muscles, resulting in dynamic works full of linear lines and structure.
On Site – Drawing & Painting with award winning and renowned artist Lucy Culliton where
participants will have individual tuition at Norman Lindsay’s iconic National trust property and gardens.
Masterclass – Plant, Paper, Print with Liz Powell using the natural surrounding of Wild Valley to
source plants and materials to explore and create with. Students will incorporate these into making paper and creating their own prints on the printing press.
Workshop for Adults & Children – Rainforest Sketching with tutor Michael Herron includes a ride on the new Scenic Railway plus a tour of the rainforest with sketchbooks in hand.
Workshop – Fantastic Flowers with Suzanne Archer takes participants on a journey from small studies of exotic flowers and other plant material to the development of more creative, imaginative
larger drawings using compositions arranged from your original observations.
Classes Beginners to Advanced – A Stroke of Perfection with Michiyo Miwa. Learn the graceful contemplative form of Japanese ink painting known as sumi-e, learning to control brush strokes with
simplicity and harmony.

Due to loss of habitat in the Macquarie Marshes of northern NSW, Sydney city dwellers are now living with large numbers of White Ibises. The White Ibis (Threskiornis moluccus) is an indigenous Australian bird. To some people, the White Ibis symbolises the sacred Ibis worshiped by the Egyptians or the vast Australian land, to others it is an irritating nuisance. Alternate colloquial names include “Bin Chicken”, “Dump Chook” or “Tip Turkey”, from its habit of rummaging in garbage. It was known as Mardungurra among the Yindjibarndi people of the central and western Pilbara.
We are looking for artworks that explore inner city living with the white Ibis…the pros and cons.
We are after works that show your point of view…whather it is raising awareness of indiginous birds, evolution & extinction, or having them nick your child’s sandwich.
Please email a jpeg image of artwork or proposal with artwork dimensions, artist bio and optional artist statement (max 300 words) by 27 September 2013 to:
ESP Gallery firstname.lastname@example.org OR email@example.com
