Outback Archies of Landscape, Legends and Lifelines
After a successful exhibition last year Outback Arts has announced the Outback Archies annual art competition and exhibition is open for 2012. The exhibition celebrates the work of artists from Western NSW residing in the 3 regional arts boards of Outback Arts, Orana Arts and West Darling Arts. Outback Arts Regional Arts Development Officer Jamie-Lea Hodges said the exhibition received such tremendous support last year that she felt it was necessary to have it again this year. “Last year was just so fantastic. We had over 80 entries and they were very diverse. I hope that 2012 brings another round of some great art by our talented artists.”
Opening event: The Outback Archies (and the Moorambilla Festival) will be opened by Federal Member for Parkes, Mr Mark Coulton MP, on Friday 21 September at 5pm.
