Thursday – Monday
The word “selfie” may have only recently made it into dictionaries, but our obsession with how we represent ourselves is certainly not a new concept.
The gallery is celebrating the self-image with its first open combined art and photographic competition.
Click a selfie that shows your place in the Collie landscape, at the skate park, the Bibbulmun Track, somewhere around your school, down by the river or wherever you feel most ‘yourself’ in and around Collie.
The most impressive images will be printed and displayed at the gallery for the duration of the exhibition.
Flick some paint on your palette, or flick open your art supplies, and get working on your self-portrait.
Abstract or realist, canvas or paper, drawing, print or paint – any combination – it’s up to you.
Finished works must be no larger than 100cm x 100cm, and must be ready to hang with D-rings.
Total prize pool $1500. Entries must be submitted by 25 September 2015.
Download an entry form or drop into the gallery Thursdays-Mondays, 11am-5pm.
Phone 9734 2921 for more information.
The Selfie competition is proudly supported by Collie River Valley Marketing Inc.
