Bendigo Art Award

What a surprise when I got called on a quiet Sunday afternoon.
“You’ve won the first prize.”
“WHAT???”
“You have won the first prize!”

Earlier I had entered The Waller Art Prize. An inaugural &prize exhibition, first held in October 2018 at Trades Hall in Bendigo. The Prize was initiated by in honour of Bendigo Artist & BendArts founder Hugh Waller (1959 – 2017). The opening of the Waller is 20th October, 6pm

I already was happy I had made it to finalist and could have hang my painting in the Trades Hall for a couple of weeks. I absolutely had not expected to win anything. Having my name out there had been my goal.
It is such a great honour to be chosen out of all the other professional artists with their amazing works! THANKS BENDIGO XXXXX

Paintings which are urgently needed to ‘go on with their life’. Today’s date was not randomly picked, but part of a larger logistic plan; A …
