ANNUAL SPRING EXHIBITION 2020
Open to SW artists (no photography or craft). Details and conditions will be on the entry form, available early August.
This exhibition is always very well attended. Sincere thanks to our wonderful sponsors for the generous prizes and awards.
"unearth discover embrace Pemberton Art Prize 2020" and "Sculpture in the Vines":
I regret to inform you that following a Pemberton Arts Group (PAG) committee meeting yesterday afternoon, a decision was made to reschedule Sculpture in the Vines 2020 to 2021 and the Pemberton Art Prize 2020 to spring 2020 - all being well at that time. This decision is in response to advice from Arts and national and world health authorities, and in view of ramping up actions to decrease risk to vulnerable members of our local and wider communities. We believe that PAG has a responsibility to protect artists, sponsors, visitors and our volunteers. The recommended social distancing, travel restrictions and limitations on public gatherings will impact negatively on our event and while we are very aware of the disappointment to all, it is imperative that we act according to the best interests of the Australian public.
"GalleriesWest encourages all volunteer operated galleries to close to the public and all volunteer dependent programs in galleries with professional staff should be suspended."
Artists who have already entered the Pemberton Art Prize can leave their entry details till spring. If this doesn't suit, then please contact me for an alternative arrangement.
