Calling all artists … Art in a Day is a collaboration between the neighbouring suburbs of Newmarket, Parnell and Grafton. On 21 February, artists of all ages can capture the character and identity of these three suburbs through painting and drawing media, in just one day. The artworks will be exhibited at the Parnell Community Centre on 28 February and 1 March, and all paintings will be available for purchase.
Five great prizes are up for grabs: 1st Prize $2,000; 2nd Prize $1,000; 3rd Prize $500. The People’s Choice Award is a 1 year pool membership (worth $650) to the Olympic Pool & Fitness Centre; and the Secondary School Prize of $500 worth of art supplies from Gordon Harris.
The four winners, selected by special guest judges, will be announced at an evening celebratory event on Saturday 28 February.
