ART UNLIMITED IS BACK
Like so many events, Art Unlimited 2020 was a casualty of Covid 19. The cancellation of the exhibition was disappointing but unavoidable. However there has been a silver lining to what has been a challenging year for everyone, particularly those in the arts world. The imposed quiet time that many artists, photographers and ceramicists have been able to spend working at their practice has produced positive and exciting results.
An impressive 333 entries from every state in Australia testify to the important role that events like Art Unlimited play. For entrants it offers an opportunity to pursue excellence and have their work exposed to a significant audience. For audiences who attend the exhibition it provides inspiration, enrichment and pleasure. For the community of Dunedoo it brings a sense of pride in an event of quality, style and imagination that demonstrates the vision, commitment and co-operation of the team of volunteers involved.
Art Unlimited, Dunedoo’s annual art competition and exhibition, will be held on 22/23 & 29/30 May 2021. Art Unlimited has established a reputation as one of regional Australia’s leading art competitions with more than 400 artists, photographers and ceramicists vying for prize money in excess of $10,000.
Tickets for the catered opening night on Friday 21st May are $35 and must be booked and pre-purchased. Superb quality catering is provided by Dunedoo Central School Food Technology students and fine wines from Burnbrae Wines, Mudgee.
