Calling all artists
Entries are now open for both adult and junior categories in the annual “Town of Murals Art Show”.
There is a wide range of categories, with adult, youth and children sections. Thanks to the many generous sponsors involved, there is prize money offered in all sections. The major prize of $2,000 is be sponsored by Cessnock City Council.
Attracting hundreds of artists each year, the competition is strong and the standard of entries is exceptional. In 2018, a Schools Section was added which proved to be very popular, with a cash prize being awarded to the school gaining the most votes from the community.
