West Darling Arts have a new art prize and have set a challenge for artists in the Far West. 

“Pushing Your Boundaries in 3D” is an open exhibition of three-dimensional artwork that can be made in any medium although they will need to be fit for public display for the period of the exhibition. 

Artists will be required to push their boundaries and challenge themselves with something new for this competition. 

For example, it could be using a different media or material, or maybe playing with a new scale or style. 

The winning work will be awarded a prize of $500. 

Executive Director of West Darling Arts Cathy Farry said the options were almost unlimited. 

“The art can be made of anything, maybe not an ice sculpture because that wouldn’t last long enough for the exhibition, as long as we can get it into the building,” Ms Farry said. 

“It’s a way for people to expand their practice.” 

Entry to the competition is free, however artists are limited to two works each and they need to live within the region covered by West Darling Arts, which are the areas of Broken Hill City Council, Wentworth Shire, Central Darling Shire and the Western Unincorporated Area. 

Artworks are due in by Monday, July 1, with the exhibition opening on Friday, July 5. 

For more information and to collect an entry form, contact West Darling Arts or drop in to their office in the Town Hall Facade.
