HISTORY

... a brief history

The Camden Art Prize Committee Inc is holding its 42nd Annual Exhibition this year with a great history behind the staging of this major annual cultural event.  Run entirely by volunteers, and with the support of local businesses and Council, the Art Prize is renowned as a high calibre art exhibition and competition with entries coming from both the local and surrounding areas.

The Committee began with a vision to allow  an avenue for artists to sell their works, for the  enjoyment and appreciation of art in the local and wider community and the opportunity to acquire artworks for the Municipal Collection. The Art Prize has gone on to encourage and enthuse school children to better appreciate the art in the exhibition, with school excursions and drawing classes held throughout the exhibition from talented artists explaining different methods, mediums and results.
