Artists wanted to capture Easter Festival
The City of Greater Bendigo, with support from Arthouse Direct Bendigo, is looking for artists to capture scenes from the 2018 Bendigo TAFE Bendigo Easter Festival as part of the Easter Paint Out project.
City Arts and Culture Coordinator Maree Tonkin said selected artists would be provided with a canvas and a $75 Arthouse Direct voucher to purchase art supplies before they head out to paint in the festival precinct on Good Friday and Saturday.
“On Easter Sunday, people will have an opportunity to view the art works at the Bendigo Visitor Centre and vote for the one they like the most,” Ms Tonkin said.
“A $250 People’s Choice Award, sponsored by Arthouse Direct, will be awarded to the artist with the most votes.
“All of the finished works will be exhibited for one week from Easter Sunday in the Bendigo Visitor Centre.
“The Easter Paint Out has become a popular part of the festival and is part of the City’s ongoing commitment to support local artists and cultural events.”
Artists need to register their interest at www.bendigoeasterfestival.org.au by Monday March 13.
