The Gosford Art Prize is a major art prize on the Central Coast. The art prize is open to all artists and attracts entries from across the country. The exhibition of finalists showcases artworks by artists from across the nation competing for over $15,000 of prizes. Prizes are awarded for 2-dimensional work (including painting, drawing, printing, and mixed media), photography & digital media, sculpture and ceramics. This year judges deliberated over 583 entries to select the 153 finalists.

Winners will be announced at the opening. Last year, Pamela Honeyfield was the overall winner of the Gosford Art Prize, for her painting entitled ‘Fields of Gold’, Christoper Dewar took out the dimensional category with his, ‘Desert Flowers’ work and other artists were also commended for their efforts in sculpture, ceramics and digital media.

We wish all the KAB Gallery artists the best of luck to take home the prizes! With such great artworks, chances are high!
