Northern Rivers artists have until 15 September to submit their entries to the 2023 Ingenuity Sculpture Exhibition.
This year’s theme is ‘Story of Place’ and will be held in conjunction with the Brunswick Valley Historical Society (BVHS) which is celebrating its 40th birthday. The exhibition is open to 3D works as well as audio-visual works with the final exhibition taking place at the Brunswick Valley Historical Society (BVHS) in both the Mullumbimby Museum and surrounding grounds.
‘All artists resident of the NSW Northern Rivers are eligible,’ said Creative Mullum’s Suvira McDonald who is coordinating the exhibition.
Artists who live in Tweed, Byron, Ballina, Lismore, Clarence Valley, Richmond Valley, and Kyogle Shires can all submit works and have the chance to win prizes totalling $8,500. The prizes are the $7,000 RGOL Prize (acquisitive) and the $500 Live Long & Prosper Prize for female artists over 50.
Concert and artists’ talks
The exhibition will run over ten days from 6–15 October with workshops, artists’ talks and more happening including a marvellous concert at the launch. A new Artist Residency program will also be run in conjunction with the 2023 Ingenuity Sculpture Exhibition.
The entry fee is $25 per submission. For more information: creativemullum.org.au.
