ACI is proud to support the Sunshine Coast Art Prize presented by the Sunshine Coast Council.
Now in its ninth year, the Sunshine Coast Art Prize attracts the best contemporary and emerging artists Australia has to offer. The winner of the two-dimensional (2D) category receives $15,000 and the winning work is added into the Sunshine Coast Art Collection.
For details – see the Caloundra Regional Gallery website.
farewell to Artists on the Green
Artists on the Green was an important part of ACI activities and was held on the Montville Village Green.
Wet weather caused the discontinuation of this event in 2012, having commenced in 2008.
Artists on the Green appealed particularly to members who were 'starting out', or whose work fitted well into an out-door market environment. It provided an opportunity for emerging artists to exhibit as part of a group. Other opportunities for similar activities were investigated, but over time members have focused on other ACI events, such as Open Studios; Sculpture on the Edge.
Small one-off exhibitions are held from time to time and tri-monthly meetings are followed by a social gathering with food, wine and song....and sometimes a mini-exhibition.
If you are an artist making quality original artworks to display and sell, please consider joining Arts Connect Inc. to participate in our core activities.
