The Artists of the Valley Inc. are gearing up for their annual Clarice Beckett Art Award for 2014. The quality of last year’s entries gave the judge a challenge, and we expect no less again this year. With the overall first prize award increased to $500, plus additional sections – to give more artists, including younger folk and artists who work in 3D, a chance to share their work – and prizes for each section, we’re looking forward to the event.
Clarice Beckett was a Casterton-born artist who knew the trials and joys of making art. It is in her honour the Award was inaugurated.
