Outback Archies expand entry zone
Outback Arts has announced the theme for the 2022 Outback Archies Art Prize, legends and landscapes.
Outback Archies have grown year on year, shining a
light on the diverse and talented creatives in the region.
Outback Arts have teamed up with several key partners
which will once again extend the reach of this project.
Entries will be accepted from seventeen local government
areas, including the traditional Outback Art
region and Gilgandra, Narrabri, Moree, Gunnedah, and
Broken Hill, among others.
The 2022 art prize will also cater for the creative
youth in regional NSW with the Young Archies, featured
in two categories, primary school and high school.
Youth entries may explore any medium of their choosing.
The usual prizes remain, including the major Outback Archies Prize, People’s Choice, Aboriginal Art Award plus first and second prizes for each category of Ceramics, Sculpture, Two Dimensional and Photo-graphy. Outback Arts executive director Jamie-Lea Trindall said the Outback Archies is looked forward to by artists each year.
“Great interest has already been shown by artists
preparing to enter and those planning a trip to view the
exhibition. It has locals at the core but promotes regional
artists far and wide.”
The Outback Archies showcases the talented creatives within regional NSW and brings them together to inspire one another as well as providing emerging artists with a platform to boost their profile.
Outback Arts strive to support artists by providing opportunities to exhibit and showcase their work locally as well as in metro galleries by securing exhibition opportunities.
