We are delighted to reveal that for the second year running The Galeries will be hosting 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 5 years or less, to submit their works for the opportunity of a life time.

During Art Month, The Galeries and Art Month Sydney initiated the call out for submissions.

Five finalists have been carefully selected by Art Month Creative Director, Barry Keldoulis and The Galeries team.

Congratulations to all that entered, and a big congratulations to the final five finalists that will be exhibiting at the Emerging Artist Exhibition in June:

• Robin Hearfield 
• Joanne Makas 
• Hannah Hoogedeure 
• Zoe Wong 
• Zachary Harold 

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.

More details to follow soon!
