140th Annual Exhibition  11June - 10 July

(“A4 Anonymous” Exhibition)

Don't forget, this will be an exhibition with a major difference. It will be a celebration of our society, in recognition of our past, and looking forward to our future.

All works will be in A4 Format and anonymous. Within this format there will be a great variety of works from a great selection of artists, including well-known artists. There has been a huge amount of enthusiasm for this project, and the demand for A4 blocks upon which the works will be painted or mounted has exceeded our expectations.

All proceeds will go towards a new biennial national art award. Prices for all works will be $140.
