Ferry Park Gallery ‘8X8 Small Works’ competition results

Each year the Lower Clarence Art and Crafts Association (LCACA) holds the Small Works 8×8 competition at Ferry Park Gallery.

This year we have hung a record number of entries, with a high standard of work across all sections. There is a mix of paintings, mixed media, glass, wood, collection, collage, assemblage, patchwork and sculpture in response to the theme of “The Everyday”.

The works reflect precious moments from our ‘everyday’ lives, something that suddenly feels more important and emotive in this current climate. It is significant that with six months of drought, fire, flood and now COVID19, the subjects reflect things close to home; simple things that are important to us.

Unfortunately, Ferry Park Gallery is closed to the public but we are working on displaying the entries on our website and Facebook page.  

The curators of the Exhibition wish to thank all entrants for their contribution to what is a stunning show of responses to the theme, ‘The Everyday’
