  • Entries for the 2019 Calleen Art Award are now open. Founded in 1977 by Mrs Patricia Fagan OAM the Calleen Art Award has developed into a prestigious acquisitive art prize for painting open to artists (over 18 years) based in Australia. The winner will receive $20,000 in prize money made possible by the generosity of the Calleen Trust.

    Submissions are invited in any subject or style, demonstrating creativity, originality and artistic excellence and using traditional painting mediums such as acrylic, oil or watercolour. A special panel of art professionals will select the finalists for exhibition at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery from 5 May to 16 June 2019. The winner will be judged from the exhibition and announced at the official opening on Saturday 4 May 2019. The winning artwork will become part of the Calleen Collection at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery.
