The Calleen Art Award is open to artists across Australia and entries must be an unaided artwork in any painting medium including oil paint, acrylic or watercolour. The Calleen Art Award encourages originality, creativity and excellence in the visual arts.

The Calleen Art Award was founded in 1977 by Art Patron Mrs Patricia Fagan OAM and is made possible with the generous support of the Calleen Trust. The Calleen Art Award finalist’s exhibition at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery is a signature art event in the central west region of NSW.

This year the Gallery received 321 entries and 49 works have been selected as finalists by the pre-selection panel of art professionals. The selected artworks consist of a diverse range of visually compelling, thoughtful and challenging paintings. The winning work will join the Calleen Collection housed at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery and visitors to the Calleen Art Award exhibition can vote in the People’s Choice Award. This is announced at the end of the exhibition. 

The opening night and announcement of the winner of the Calleen Art Award 2022 is on Saturday 8 October 2022 from 6pm and promises to be a memorable and enjoyable event.
