POP UP EXHIBITION – VIEWING ENDS TODAY SUNDAY 6TH NOVEMBER – GALLERY OPEN 12 NOON TO 5PM
Gallery 1 & 2
Judges always have a difficult task and most of the works in this selection could easily be a winner. Gillian Shaw with Ron Ramsey quipped before announcing the finalist names on Friday night that they had a get-a-way car parked outside and the engine was running. I think I saw them this morning still circling Newcastle and heading NORTH, FAR NORTH.
Seeking a prize purse of $10,000 the finalists are:
Andrew Finnie, James Drinkwater, Grant Vercoe, Lottie Consalvo, Dallas Bray, Andy Devine & Peter Tilley, Nicola Bolton, John Earle, John Morris, Kerrie Coles and Leslie Tilley.
The winner of the prize will be announced at a later private event arranged by the Newcastle Club.
The remaining works now form part of the Newcastle Club Foundation Painting Prize’s first Salon de Refuse (well sort of as they were winners being selected for the first round) at NAS and are all for sale and today is your last chance.
Why not be smart, hedge your bets and potentially purchase work from the next winner of a significant art prize. This then would increase the value further of your current purchase as well as giving you the day-to-day pleasure and joy of having a wonderful work in your home or office space. It would also provide funds for the artist to continue to make the next work.
Also consider purchasing the new NCAC publication edited by Andrew Finnie with photography by Joerg Lehmann Artists and Artisans with funds going back to support the NCAC with its future relocation.
See the exhibition today and make your own choices about the winners. If you had the judge's role who would you pick?
