The 2019 Chiltern Art Prize will be the 17th annual art show held in Chiltern, North East Victoria, June 7 - 10, 2019 and is open to all Australian artists.
Held at the Chiltern War Memorial Hall over the Queen's birthday long weekend in June, the event will officially launch with the Award Night from 6pm on June 7, which promises a rollicking good time with locally crafted beer, wine, canapés and music. Awards announced at 7pm - hosted by the delightful Alyce Fisher of Murray Arts fame.
While it's dark, be sure to check out a special artwork on the corner of Conness and Main Streets. We have commissioned projection artist Helen Newman to create a moving image themed on the Chiltern Mt-Pilot National Park - don't miss this!
If a party is not your thing, come check out the art on Saturday, Sunday or Monday - 10am - 4pm
Alongside hundreds of artworks, we have lots to see and do:
2019 artist in residence Taro Iiyama, will set up a pop-up studio in the foyer of the hall, his work is unique and not to be missed!
Lisa Bishop will be running a fun and creative workshop at her studio on Conness Street on Saturday June 8 - bookings essential - tickets will be available early to mid May via our Facebook page.
And this year’s Chiltern Art Prize will be accompanied by very a special event - a retrospective of the Prize’s 2018 winner Tony Thornhill Cole. A collection of his work will be exhibited at the Senior Citizens Hall and a celebration of his life will be held there on on June 8.
One of Tony's works will also be our raffle prize this year.
