at the Lovett Gallery Cygnet

(subject to COVID-19 restrictions)

First prize $1,000 Second prize $500 and Highly Commended $250

With short days and cool winter months upon us, our committee is encouraging the many talented local artists to create a unique and interesting portrait – could be a friend, relation, neighbour, local identity or public figure, or perhaps a self-portrait. This year you can also enter portraits of real animals (not mythical) – perhaps your pet, the cat next door, or wildlife visitors.

Entries are now closed.

Entries closed 5pm Friday 15th October 2021

The exhibition will run for four weekends from 23 October 2021 to 14 November 2021

Saturday-Sunday 23-24 October

Friday-Saturday-Sunday 29-30-31 October

Friday-Saturday-Sunday 5-6-7 November

Friday-Saturday-Sunday 12-13-14 November.

We look forward to showcasing portraits by HAEG members and non-members of any age (there is no special “student” category). All works should be of real people or real animals and not previously exhibited.

Mixed media, including yarn & textile works, sculptural interpretations in clay or found materials, “green works” in plants; photography and all painted and drawn expressions are welcome.

Entry fee will be $10 for all entries. Works may be sold, but this is optional.
