EWART ART PRIZE 2016
The Ewart Gallery is home of the Ewart Art Prize. Each year the gallery hosts this art prize for our members. The members’ exhibition has always been a major event in the Ewart Gallery calendar and forms part of a strong tradition at the Workshop Arts Centre. In years past there were celebratory sit down dinners at the WAC to celebrate the members’ exhibitions.
Newtown Art Supplies was proud to sponsor the competition this time around, which had a host of amazing artwork submissions, judged by Luise Guest (Director, Education & Research at White Rabbit Collection).
Jane Theau (Workshop Arts Centre President), Meghan Rauch (Newtown Art Supplies), Luise Guest (Director, Education & Research at White Rabbit Collection) and Willoughby City Council Mayor Gail Giles-Gidney.
