Bright Art Gallery is all set up for its 55th annual exhibit
Preparations are complete for one of Australia’s best known Art Shows in the beautiful town of Bright in north east Victoria.
Stephne McCall, President of the Gallery, says that this year’s show promises to live up to the high standards of the previous ones.
There are 760 paintings on display, showcasing artists from as far away as Sydney and many parts of Victoria. Works will be judged in various media categories, while the Grand Winner attracts a prize of $5,000 and becomes part of the Gallery’s important collection.
The judge this year is Amanda Hyatt, one of Australia’s foremost water colourists and recognised in many other countries.
He says that there is sufficient variety of style and price to suit all tastes and pockets.
The exhibition runs until 14 May making it the longest running art show of this type in Australia.
It coincides with the annual Bright Autumn Festival, famous for the beautiful colours of the Autumn trees.
