Artists invited to submit original artworks for upcoming ‘Lions Club Art’ 2022 exhibition
The Lions Club of Kalamunda supports arts in the City of Kalamunda and is offering this group of awards to encourage and promote local artists. Hosting their annual exhibition at the Zig Zag Gallery, 2022 applications are now open and close on Monday, 3 January 2022.
The Lions Club Art Award is an annual collaboration between The Lions Club of Kalamunda and the City of Kalamunda. Unusually for a Service Club, the local group of Lions have supported the KALAMUNDA art scene since the inaugural exhibition in 2014. The
late Charlie Irwin, a long time member of the Lions Club of Kalamunda approached the Zig Zag Gallery in 2012 with the idea of an art prize which would give local artists at all levels of expertise the opportunity to exhibit in a professional space.
The first exhibition comprised of more than 50 pieces which were entered in 4 separate categories resulting in a varied and colourful array of artworks for the public to enjoy. Many first time exhibitors have continued to develop their art practice
and continue to participate in exhibitions and award events.
Charlie’s legacy continues with the encouragement of Grant Williams and his group of stalwart supporters within the Lions Club of Kalamunda.
Selected artwork pieces will be exhibited from 15th January to 6th February 2022 at Zig Zag Gallery and are available for sale. There are various award categories including First Prize of a $1,000 and a Peoples’ Choice Prize will also be awarded to the most popular artwork at the end of the exhibition.
Applications close Monday, 3 January 2022. All artworks will need be provided to the gallery by Monday 10 January 2022.
For full submission criteria and application, interested artists are encouraged to download and submit a 2022 application pack. Alternatively, you can visit the Gallery to pick up an application pack or call 9257 9953 and ask for an ‘Information and Application’ form
