Warringah Art Prize
Prize Pool More Than Doubled as Exhibition Moves to Warringah Creative Space
Artists are the winners as Warringah Council relaunches the Warringah Art Exhibition as the Warringah Art Prize – more than doubling the prize pool to $22,000.
‘Residents have told us how important self-expression and creativity is to our community, so we’ve doubled our commitment to this important art event,’ said Warringah Mayor Michael Regan.
‘In addition to more than doubling the prize money, we’re holding the event over two exhibitions, both at our own Warringah Creative Space. For the first time the very popular Youth and Waste to Art finalists will be displayed in their own exhibition, separate to the General finalists.’
The extra prize money has come thanks to Council staff finding efficiencies in the event, which has been running for more than 60 years.
The General category is open to artists 18 and above. The Youth category has been split into two groups 12 – 16 years and 17 – 21 years.
Two dimensional original paintings, drawings, printmaking, collage and photography can be entered in the General or Youth categories.
The Waste to Art category is open to everyone over 12 years and can also include sculpture, clothing, collage and jewellery, but it must be made from reused or recycled materials.
Registrations close Sunday 12 July 2015. For registration form and conditions of entry, visit: warringah.nsw.gov.au/play/arts-and-culture/warringah-art-prize

Taking Artists’ Submissions
Located at the heart of Sydney CBD, with high accessibility to transport, The Menzies hotel attracts a large amount of tourist clientele, who are interested in what Sydney’s creative outlets and local art scenes have to offer.
Initially established as Sydney’s first Japanese sushi restaurant in 1972, KEISAN was one of the cities’ most popular dining destinations.
Newly repurposed, Keisan is now re-opening its doors as an art gallery space with classic Japanese decor.
