Sadly we had to cancel the planned Awards Exhibition in July at last minute due to NSW COVID restrictions.
Thank you to all Members that prepared and entered their Artworks, and to the many KAS volunteers who prepared for the Awards exhibition to happen in July.
Everything was prepared ready to go.. the rosters, the lighting, the catalogue, the artwork labels, the intake team, the hanging team, the Judges, the St Ives village management and staff, and our Sponsors.
We received a record number of Entrants, over 100, and a record number of Artworks, over 300!
However we are working closely with the St Ives Village Shopping Centre Management towards running the Awards exhibition later this year.
We will keep you posted.
Meanwhile, your entry fees have been refunded. Our new online entry and payment system has greatly simplified this refund process for our Treasurer.
Please contact Treasurer Caroline if you have not received.
When a new Awards Exhibition Date becomes possible, you will need to re-enter and pay online, and set 2 new roster dates.
Meanwhile, you may online enter the “Spirit of Ku-ring-gai” Member for Bradfield, Paul Fletcher “Bradfield Art Prize” competition.
As recently emailed to all exhibiting members by KAS Secretary Jan….
Dear Exhibiting Member
We have arranged with the Member of Bradfield the Honorable Paul Fletcher to go ahead with the Member for Bradfield Art Prize. The Prize is $400 and the image will be used as his 2021 Christmas Card.
You will still be able to enter that work in the next Awards Exhibition provided it complies with the rules of The Awards Exhibition entry ie the painting has not been exhibited previously in any exhibition.
We hope to hold the Awards Exhibition in October.
One entry per exhibiting member.
Applications should be emailed by 15.8.2021.
One high quality image of the artwork in jpeg form with a maximum size of 2 megabytes. The image should be labelled as follows Family name, First name, Title of work.
Images which have not been cropped or are buckled etc will NOT be accepted.
Send to Caroline Oesterheld at email@example.com with the subject line “Bradfield Prize”.
We hope that you are well and keeping active.
Wishing you all the best.
Ku-ring-gai Art Society Committee.
