After a twelve-month hiatus, the Chiltern Visual Art Exhibition makes a welcome return this long-weekend.
The exhibition is considered one of the North East’s premier arts events and will feature works by regional and local artists across a broad range of mediums, including photography, two-dimensional works and three-dimensional works.
Renowned local artist Nina Machielse Hunt from Beechworth will judge this year’s entries, with the major prize the Chiltern Art Award valued at $1,000.
Nina is the 2013 winner of the Advocate Art Award at the Araluen Art Centre, Alice Springs and has had solo exhibitions in Orange, Molong and Wodonga.
The exhibition will include an artist in residence who is a previous winner of the Indigo Award for Young Emerging Artists, Tracie MacVean.
Local galleries, Paper Trail, Blackbird Studio and Regli’s Missing Link will also be conducting workshops, where artists can come to work with professionals.
