We are excited to be offering the chance for local artists to participate in an inaugural Camden Art Sale in 2022. This is not a competition, but rather the opportunity for emerging and established artists to exhibit and sell their works with no entry fee or commission.

It will be an open exhibition, inviting entries across painting (all mediums), drawing, sculpture, interdisciplinary mediums, and photography. Artists are invited to enter works that have been completed since the first lockdown in March 2020.

2022 CONDITIONS OF EXHIBITION:

  • Pieces must be the original work of the entrant.
  • The work must have been completed in the last 2 years.
  • Up to three artworks may be entered.
  • Artists will be responsible for their own sales.
  • Entrants must work, study or live in the Macarthur region.
  • If selected to exhibit, your work must remain for the duration of the exhibition.
