Wattle Range Art Exhibition

The quality and variety of the work were outstanding, with the Exhibition capturing the taste and interest of most people. From portraiture to landscape, industrial to textiles, found objects to ceramics and abstract to traditional, there was something to suit all tastes. Over 2000 people, including many groups from throughout the Limestone Coast and Western Victoria, visited the Gallery.

The exhibition represented an exciting mix of artists, many of whom have successfully exhibited in other exhibitions, artists and craftspersons who were mentored by Barbara Wallace through to the emerging artist exhibiting for the first time.

  • Wattle Range Art Prize – Overall Winner
  • Painting (2D) Art Prize

The Barbara Wallace Art Prize featuring Ceramics is a category within the Wattle Range Art Show, celebrating Barbara’s favourite medium and one in which she excelled, travelling internationally and throughout Australia. This art prize commemorates the outstanding contribution that Barbara Wallace made in promoting the arts and crafts within the South East.

Barbara, a talented craftsperson herself, is remembered not only for her inspiring work but for her tireless encouragement to all involved in the arts and, in particular, for her role in organising craft exhibitions and in encouraging artists/craft persons to participate and expand their skills both locally and within the wider community.

At the entrance to the Millicent Gallery is a fine collection of ceramics that depicts the development and innovation of her work.

Whether you win or not at the Wattle Range Art Exhibition, participating is a great opportunity for emerging artists to get their name out there. As a bonus, it’s held in no less than the popular Millicent Library and Gallery, a well-known exhibition space that has played an essential role in local exhibits since 1990.

The Millicent Library and Gallery is located at 1 Ridge Terrace in Millicent, South Australia.
