The Aspects Art Show committee has put out the call for entries in this year’s Goondiwindi Show. The Show weekend is fast approaching so it’s time to get into the studio – or kitchen, or shed – and produce an artistic masterpiece. Online entries are due on Wednesday 10th April.
With the number of exhibits increasing each year and an incredible $30,000 in prize money, the Aspects Art Show is recognised as a significant cultural event throughout the Goondiwindi region and beyond.
Just ask last year’s major prize winner, artist Ken Munsie, who won the Open section with his assemblage “Addio…”.
“Winning the prize at Aspects 2018 was certainly a highlight of my arts practice and I’m so grateful for the generous sponsors from the Goondiwindi district that keep this show on the road,” says Ken.
“Aspects gets my support, it has a very good reputation around the art world with a committee that’s very focused producing a quality show with worthwhile prizes and respected judges.”
Based on the Sunshine Coast, Ken began his “serious arts” career later in life when he single-handedly built a “mammoth sculpture” – a large mud-brick and stone house 25-years-ago.
Ken’s work has encompassed sculpture and ceramics using hand-made and recycled papers, recycled timber and rusted metal and more recently, paper clay.
“For the past five years I’ve been focusing on the genre of “Rescued Assemblage” art,” explains Ken.
“I seek out discarded items from op shops, city dumps, collectorama fairs and tumbled-down buildings, and create sculptural stories using materials that have had a previous life – a history of their own.”
And his advice for other artists: “Keep going no matter what reviews you get – one day you may be fortunate to win the Aspects Art Show.”
So, for your chance to win at Aspects enter online now - entries close on Wednesday 10th April.
