Description

UON staff, students and the community are invited to attend the Friends of the University of Newcastle 2014 Acquisitive Art Prizes and Art Sale on Friday 25 July.

This year, the Friends are sponsoring an Open Acquisitive Art Prize of $6,000 and two Student Acquisitive Art Prizes of $2,500 each. The development of these generous art prizes assists in the growth of the University's Art Collection which is indicative of the local art community.

The Friends of the University Collectors Art Fair is a unique opportunity to purchase contemporary artworks by significant Australian artists, including many favourites from the local region as well as Aboriginal artworks from the Central Desert.

Last held in 2012, this popular event offers art lovers the opportunity to add significant artists to their art collections.

The Friends of the University of Newcastle play a vital role in the development and support of scholarships for the University and fundraise consistently for a variety of needs of the University's community.

The exhibition will be open to the public from Wednesday 23 July to Sunday 27 July 2014.
