Artists can show work in every form

ALL artists who would like to exhibit their latest works are invited to enter the 2009 Coffs Harbour Lillipilli Art and Craft Exhibition.

This is the biggest annual exhibition of its type for the year between Sydney and Brisbane, and carries $13,500 in prizemoney.

Entry forms for the 2009 Lillipilli are now available throughout Coffs Harbour at Fletchers Fotographics, The Book Warehouse, Coffs Harbour Art Gallery, The Bunker Gallery, and Woolgoolga Art Gallery.

Artists can also contact bbloor@iprimus.com.au with a request for an entry form to be emailed to them.

All dates, terms and conditions

of entry are included on the entry form.

Scheduled to run during the first semester school holidays next year, the Lillipilli Exhibition will open at the Norm Jordan Pavilion in the Coffs Harbour Showgrounds on April 17 and will then be open daily to the public until Sunday, April 26.

There will be around 400 entries on exhibition.

With 24 categories of arts and crafts catered for in the Lillipilli, artists from all walks of life are catered for.

All forms of painting will be on display, along with fibrecraft, woodwork, ceramics, woodwork, sculpture, calligraphy and photography.

There is even an Other Art Form category where fascinating oddities of art find a home. The Lillipilli also has developed a strong Youth Section for emerging painters, textile workers and photographers. All works must be original, must have been completed since the 2008 Lillipilli Exhibition, and must not have won a prize in any other exhibition.

“The Woolgoolga Art Group, a small community art group which organises and runs the Lillipilli Exhibition each year, is looking forward to sharing another dazzling display of the latest in art and craft by our outstanding pool of artists,” said exhibition publicity co-ordinator Barry Bloor.

Pictured above is a new work by Queensland fibrecraft artist Fran Robinson, who was grand champion prizewinner in the 2007 Lillipilli Exhibition.

Titled Through Time and Space, Fran said of this new piece:

“New worlds, long journeys, the changes wrought by time and the traces we leave behind us.

“These ideas were behind the design and running through my mind as I explored the gentle colours and textures of this embroidery.”
