Applications are now open for creative local artists living with a disability to submit their masterpieces for exhibition in the Connect, Collaborate, Celebrate Art Competition 2022.
Connect, Collaborate, Celebrate is now in its fourth year and provides a platform for artists living with disability to showcase their creative work including drawings, graphic art or paintings no larger than 100cm x 100cm.
Willoughby City Mayor Tanya Taylor said she was looking forward to seeing a diverse range of local talent on exhibition at the Dougherty Centre.
“Connect, Collaborate, Celebrate never fails to shine a spotlight on some of the incredible artistic talent in our local community,” Mayor Taylor said.
“Whether you are a skilled drawer, have an eye for photography or take a passing interest in creative work, I encourage anyone with different abilities to take part in this amazing opportunity.”
Artists of all abilities are encouraged to submit their work consistent with one or more of the themes – Connect, Collaborate and Celebrate.
Artwork will be on exhibition at the Dougherty Community Centre, 7 Victor Street, Chatswood from 25 November to 15 December (Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm).
Mayor Taylor will announce prize winners at an invitation only morning tea at the Dougherty Centre on 1 December to celebrate International Day of People with Disability.
The overall winner will be awarded a $500 pre-paid voucher and the opportunity to hold a solo artwork exhibition at the Dougherty Centre.
Two $100 pre-paid vouchers will also be awarded to two runner-up entries.
Artwork must be submitted by 5pm on 31 October to be included in the exhibition.
