2015 NAB Flanagan Art Exhibition
April 12, 2015
Entries are now open for the 2015 St Patrick’s College Flanagan Art Exhibition featuring prizes worth $7000.
In an exciting development this year, the College is delighted to announce that the National Australia Bank Ballarat Branch has come on board as the major sponsor of this year’s exhibition and will be the naming rights sponsor for the main prize.
The winner of the Flanagan Art Exhibition will receive $5000 courtesy of the NAB.
The winner of the Federation University Emerging Artist category will receive $1500 while the best Lifestyle Ballarat Affordable Art piece will earn its creator $500.
All entries must be received by Friday, June 19 and winners will be announced at a gala function in the OCA Pavilion on August 21.
Now in its eighth year the exhibition continues to build a reputation as one of the leading art exhibitions in the Ballarat region.
Last year more than 150 entries were received from professional artists around Australia, including an entry from a former winner of Australia’s most prestigious art award, the Archibald prize.
Event organisers are hoping for further strong growth in 2015, particularly considering that a strong national brand such as the NAB has partnered the event for the first time.
All winning entries are acquired by the College and are displayed in a student access area in Kennedy House, ensuring current students have access to quality work from some of the nation’s most talented and emerging artists.
Any artist is welcome to enter the competition with entry fees remaining steady at $30 per entry.
