Blacktown City Art Prize
The Blacktown City Art Prize exhibition returns to kick off 2024 at The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre with vibrancy, excitement, and the community of Blacktown at its heart!
For the first time Blacktown City is embedded from the outset, with special consideration given to artworks that celebrate, express and reflect upon the diverse history, environment and First Nations stories of the area.
The exhibition showcases the work of 82 finalists chosen from across Australia, with prizes available in the categories of Blacktown City Art Prize Main Prize, First Nations Artist Prize, Local Artist Prize, People’s Choice Prize and Early-Career Artist Prize (new in 2024!)
Alongside the Art Prize, we will also be showcasing artworks from the Young Artist Prize. Kids and young people aged 3 to 14 years from Blacktown City are encouraged to create an artwork in response to the theme of Creating Cooler Cities.
All artworks in the 2024 Blacktown City Art Prize exhibition will be available for purchase at The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre.
Entry is free and all are welcome.
