The Blue Mountains Creative Art Centre (BMCAC) at Glenbrook held the inaugural Blue Mountains Art Prize from Friday, August 31 to Sunday, September 2.
The event was officially opened on Friday night, August 31 with works judged by Victor Peralta of Gallery One88 and Pennie Steele and Brian Reid of SteelReid Studio.
Despite the cold weather, the official opening of the art prize was a resounding success, with standing room only in BMCAC’s newly renovated building.
The major prize was won by ceramic artist Robert Linigen for his work, Bushfire Debris.
Three category prizes were awarded to Lilianne Ivins, Penny Oates and Bronwyn Campbell.
The children’s prizes were won by Kate Lees, Jordan Langridge and Henry Tankard.
The exhibition drew more crowds over the weekend.
