Competition is always fierce, and typically there are over 500 entries from all over the region for the 130-or-so acceptances. This year I took a chance and entered three small acrylic collage pieces, rather than work in cloth.
One of them was accepted. And it has already been purchased. Every year the Gallery buys a single work and then awards it to someone randomly chosen from all those who purchase a piece of art during the show. This year the winner will go home with Touchstone #1.
The idea behind the Stewart Hall Rental Collection is that a wide range of work (different sizes, different media, different subjects, different colours, different price points) is accepted for the show at the beautiful Stewart Hall Gallery. When the show closes in late November, all the works become available for sale or rental, for one year. Last year I was lucky enough to sell a large cityscape in fibre.
Come and see what it's all about!
