The Calleen Art Award was established as an acquisitive art prize in 1977 by arts patron Mrs Patricia Fagan OAM, with the winning work joining the Calleen Collection, the foundation collection of the Cowra Regional Art Gallery.

The Calleen Art Award is a major Gallery event and a favourite annual exhibition with the Cowra district audiences and visitors to the region. This visitor recognition and its ongoing development as a nationally significant and prestigious art award for painting has also benefited from the support by the Calleen Trust, providing prize money of $20,000 in 2019.

The winning painting of the 2019 Calleen Art Award is Erskineville Train Station (pictured) by Wendy Sharpe. Recent winners include Brian Robinson (2018) Cairns, Zai Kuang (2017) Victoria, Tania Mason (2016) NSW, and Yvonne Boag (2015) NSW.
