Ferry Park Gallery calling for 8×8 entries

Lower Clarence Arts and Crafts Association’s (LCACA) 8th Annual Small Works Exhibition, the “8 x 8” is on again this year in conjunction with Clarence Valley Council’s Plunge Festival.

This year’s theme is ‘FROM MY WINDOW’ (Views, Memories, Dreams) and gives artists and creatives the opportunity to interpret the theme on the canvas provided in whatever medium they work — paint, textiles, collage, needlework, mixed media, glass, ceramic, or any other medium.  There is only one rule- the work must stay within the 8×8 canvas size, although it can arise from the canvas. The competitive exhibition is open to all from children to adults and not restricted to those living in the local area.

Entry forms and canvases are available for $12 adult and $7 junior from Ferry Park Gallery, Maclean. There are three age limited sections for students and an open section, with great prize money, so why not make it a family project.

Completed entries are due by Friday, March 25 and the exhibition will run from Friday April 1 to Saturday April 30 at Ferry Park Gallery. Announcement of winners will be on Friday April 1.  Previous exhibitions can be accessed through https://ferrypark.net/exhibitions/8×8-exhibition/
