The Calleen Art Award is open to artists across Australia and encourages originality, creativity and excellence in the visual arts. The Calleen Art Award was founded in 1977 by Art Patron Mrs Patricia Fagan OAM and is made possible with the generous support of the Calleen Trust. The Calleen Art Award finalist’s exhibition at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery is a signature art event in the central west region of NSW. This year the Gallery received 321 entries and 51 works have been selected as finalists by the pre-selection panel of art professionals. The selected artworks consist of a diverse range of visually compelling, thoughtful and challenging paintings. The winning work will join the Calleen Collection housed at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery. Sally is proud to announce her painting “The Crossing”, 100x150cm, oil on canvas, is one of this year’s finalists.
