Just one click away, The Bathurst Art Fair is here to stay!
The Bathurst Art Fair is set to go digital this year, with a feast of artwork by regional artists presented in an online display. The revised exhibition dates for the Art Fair are Monday 1 November to Tuesday 30 November 2021.
The Bathurst Art Fair Online will run for the duration of November, expanding the audience outreach, and extending support for local artists. All artworks will be available for purchase online with prices suitable for a range of budgets.
‘The Bathurst Art Fair promotes, supports, and celebrates the work of artists from across the region,’ says Bathurst Regional Art Gallery Society Inc. President, Annette Crothers. ‘We are delighted that the 2021 Art Fair will proceed in a new digital format to provide the opportunity for artists to sell works at a time when financial support is very much needed.’
Artists from across the region including Bathurst, Lithgow, Oberon, Blayney, Cowra, Orange, Mudgee, and the Blue Mountains are encouraged to submit up to two (2) artworks in any medium including painting, drawing, photography, printmaking, sculpture, and ceramics. A tip sheet for photographing your artwork is provided. Artists must register by completing the online application form by midnight Sunday 17 October.
