Being a smaller works exhibition, the Harcourt Applefest Art Show has a distinctive edge. As artist Rick Amor points out, ‘restricting the works to a modest size allows the viewer an intimate experience of each drawing or painting without the distraction of competing scale.’
The Harcourt Applefest Art Show is also unique for having a large Junior section. The engaging works submitted by younger artists ensure that the Art Show committee is always delighted by emerging styles and fresh perspectives.
The Art Show kicks off with a grand opening and presentation of awards at ANA Hall from 7.30 pm Thursday 9 March.
It remains open each day throughout the Labour Day long weekend.
There are eight award categories, including
- Best in Show
- Best Oil/Acrylic—Cameron Lang Memorial Award
- Best Watercolour—Shirley Stewart Memorial Award
- Best Other Medium
- Best Local Subject—a work, in any medium, depicting an object, event, person or place within the Mount Alexander Shire
- Craft Award
- Best Junior & Highly Commended, 12 Years and Under
- Best Junior & Highly Commended, 13 – 18 Years
We are pleased to display high-quality original art works as part of the festival.
