Spring, renewal, growth. September is our Spring. Chill winter slips away and our Hills come alive with growth and zing and sunshine comes to stay. Don your artist’s apron now and create a work that sings.
The work may be figurative, semi-abstract, still-life or figure-in-landscape.
Acceptable media are: oil painting, acrylic painting, water-colour, pastels or mixed media on canvas, board or artists paper with a cubist, impressionist, tonalist, fauvist, surrealist, pop art, futurist, hard-edge, modern, naïve, orientalist, pointillist, precisionist, regionalist or romanticist style.
A painting or composition that depicts life in and around the game and sport of cricket, in settings of backyard, park, beach, street, local club or social-cricket.
The judges for 2010 are comedian and author Steve Abbott; art collector Dr. Dick Quan; art-critic John McDonald and last years winning artist - Jane Kellahan.
A wider variety of entries are expected this year due to the Cricket Art Prize being open to all test-cricket playing nations… the closing date is the 1st of September and all artists are encouraged to get hold of an entry form and ‘start putting some runs on the board’.
