The Shire of Harvey has celebrated the 2023 Harvey Art Prize winners!
Congratulations to the 2023 Harvey Art Prize winners! Harvey Region's art scene was abuzz this month with the remarkable Harvey Art Prize exhibition. Kicking off during the September long weekend, the exhibition showed off incredible local talent and celebrated nine award recipients. More than 100 pieces of art were entered into the competition and displayed for public viewing at Harvey Recreation and Cultural Centre. Pieces explored the theme "connection" and were judged by an expert panel of Shire and sponsor representatives. The Harvey Art Prize is a biennial event previously managed by Harvey Art Society. This year, sponsors included Harvey Water, Alcoa, Member for Forrest The Hon. Nola Marino MP, Rotary Club of Harvey, Harvey Art Society and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. Check out photos from the event below. Harvey Art Prize winners:
The 2023 Harvey Art Prize exhibition coincided with the launch of the CONNECTION Project. Throughout August and September, community groups have been decorating oversized letters that spell the word CONNECTION. Locals can view the completed CONNECTION project at Harvey Recreation and Cultural Centre throughout the September/October school holiday period. The letters will then be moved around to special community events, including the Brunswick Show and Youthchella.
