Emerging Artist Exhibition '17
For the second year running, The Galeries hosted the 'Emerging Art Prize' in partnership with Art Month Sydney. The 'Emerging Art Prize' celebrates emerging artists in Sydney by allowing artists that have been practising for five years or less, to submit their works for an opportunity of a lifetime. During Art Month, The Galeries and Art Month Sydney initiatied the call out for submissions where five finalists were carefully selected for the opportunity of a lifetime.
These five finalists will be exhibiting their works in June as part of the official 'Emerging Artist Exhibition'.
An overall winner will be selected to receive $4,000 prize money and a personal mentorship with Art Month Creative Director, Barry Keldoulis.
The public will also have the opportunity to vote for their favourite artist via The Galeries website, with a People's Choice prize of $1,000 award.
Congratulations to all that entered, and a big congratulations to the final five. Find out more about the raw talent below:
