Step 1 of 6 - Important Information

  • Entries for the 2020 Calleen Art Award are now open. The Calleen Art Award is a major annual art prize and exhibition event presented by the Cowra Regional Art Gallery located in the Central West region of New South Wales. The Calleen Art Award was established by art patron Mrs Patricia Fagan OAM in 1977 with the aim to encourage originality, creativity and artistic merit. Over the years the Calleen Art Award has steadily grown in stature and prize money made possible by the Calleen Trust.

    The announcement of the Calleen Art Award 2020 winner worth $20,000 will be made at the exhibition opening of finalists on Saturday 3 October 2020. The Calleen Art Award is an acquisitive prize and the winning artwork for 2020 will become part of the splendid Calleen Collection at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery.

    The winner of the non-acquisitive People’s Choice Award 2020 worth $1,000 in prize money, courtesy of the Friends of the Gallery is announced at the end of the Calleen Art Award exhibition.
