Cowra Regional Art Gallery has opened its annual Calleen Art Award invitation, calling on Australian artists to enter the Calleen Art Award and Central West Regional Art Award.

Established in 1977 by Patricia Fagan (and made possible by the support of the Calleen Trust), the Calleen Art Award is an acquisitive national award for painting in any subject or style. The winner will receive $19,000 and have his or her painting join the Calleen Collection at the gallery.

Artists living in Central West NSW are also eligible to enter the Central West Regional Art Award, a non-acquisitive award for painting or drawing in any subject and style. The winning regional artist will take home $2,500 in prize money.

So if you think you have what it takes to enter the awards, and win, download a copy of the entry form and get painting! Entries close 6 March 2015.
