Once again the categories for the Bassendean Visual Art Awards are wide open, the main criteria being that the work is no more than two years old at the closing date. Entry forms are now available from Town of Bassendean Cultural Services – phone Jackie O on 9377 8000.
The total prize money has increased with $5000 top prize money offered for the Town of Bassendean Open Award. There is also $1000 for Works on Paper including Photography. Nice to see it specifically included this year. The Flat art can be works of any mediun, max size 1.2m by 1.2m, which leaves nearly all the artistic decisions up to the artist. Fat works will need three dimensions no more than 2 metres in any direction. Sculptures also have to be discussed with the Town beforehand. Think I will just stick with photography.
ToB must be expecting a lot of interest as this year it is only one entry per person, with $20.00 emtry fee. Anyhoo time to turn on your right brain, get into the zone and create – entries close, somewhat ominously, on Friday 13th August. Does ToB want visions from the dark side?
