The Calleen Art Award is an acquisitive national painting prize in any subject and style. It is the Central West’s signature art prize and one of Australia’s richest. The Award was established in 1977 by Patricia Fagan OAM and is made possible with the support of the Calleen Trust. The winner of the 2015 Calleen Art Award will receive $19,000 in prize money and their painting will join the Calleen Art Collection at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery. Recent winners include Claire Martin (NSW), Peter Gardiner (NSW), Gladdy Kemarre (NT) and Naomi White (Qld) in 2014. The Central West Regional Art Award is non-acquisitive, attracting entries from some the regions foremost artists. The 2015 winner will receive $2,500 in prize money. Finalists are selected by a panel of art professionals and the winners are announced by the Awards Judge at the Awards Gala Opening.
