Indigenous art at regional gallery

The Lismore Regional Gallery will be hosting the National Parks and Wildlife Service Aboriginal Art Award from Saturday, June 5, until July 10.

Now in its ninth year, the event aims to bring kudos and respect for Indigenous artists in the Northern Rivers region.

The award offers cash prizes in a number of categories, including $3000 and $1000 open prizes, a $1000 award for artists under the age of 18, a $1000 award for collaborative work by Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal artists, and a $1000 people’s choice award sponsored by Southern Cross University’s Gnibi College of Indigenous Studies.

The Art Award will be run simultaneously with an exhibition of prints by the highly regarded Brisbane-based artist, Judy Watson.
