The Calleen Art Award was established as an acquisitive art prize in 1977 by local arts patron Mrs Patricia Fagan, OAM, and each year the Gallery acquires the winning work for the Calleen Collection. The Calleen Art Award is a significant art prize for painting in regional New South Wales and a favourite exhibition event within the Cowra community. The winning painting for the 2018 Calleen Art Award was Sowing the Crops and Reading the Stars (pictured) by Cairns-based artist Brian Robinson.
