QPRC Art Awards 2021
28 May – 19 June
Please note: Exhibition Space Open Tue – Fri 10am – 4pm
The Art Awards started in 2008 following a partnership with the Queanbeyan Art Society dating back to 1975.
Council sponsored a major acquisitive prize at the society’s annual exhibition and the prize-winning artworks form the bulk of council’s art collection. The collection also contains additional works acquired at these exhibitions and others that have been gifted, and totals approximately 130 works.
Since 2008 the Art Awards have been a non-acquisitive exhibition sponsored and managed by QPRC and held in The Q-Exhibition Space, in Queanbeyan.
QPRC are working in partnership with the Bendigo Bank’s Braidwood and Bungendore Community Branches to increase the major art prize and expand the prize offerings. This will bring our regional art awards in line with others around the state with a TOTAL prize pool of $12,000.
