St Peter’s Cathedral will be transformed into a stunning art gallery from 13 to 21 October for the Cathedral Art Prize and Exhibition – one of the largest community art shows in Adelaide.
This year’s Exhibition will feature work from well-known Adelaide artists, as well as work from young and emerging local artists.
Prizes will be awarded to the best artwork in a number of categories, including Best Portrait, Best Still Life, Best Abstract Expression, and Best Social Comment.
Visitors to the show will also have the opportunity to choose their favourite painting, with the People’s Choice Award to be presented at the end of the week.
The Exhibition is not only a means of opening the Cathedral to the broader community, but is also a means of providing assistance to those in need by supporting a charitable program.
Proceeds from this year’s event will support an Anglican Board of Mission training and leadership development program for Indigenous Australians and Torres Strait Islanders in disadvantaged remote communities.
This program enables approximately 300 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders to undertake leadership development training, and then return home equipped with the skills and abilities to improve and develop their communities.
The Exhibition will open on Friday 13 October with an Opening Night Gala, which provides guests with the first opportunity to view and buy artwork, and enjoy drinks, canapés and jazz in the beautiful surrounds of the Cathedral. Tickets for this exclusive event are available from the Cathedral office or at https://www.trybooking.com/RRUN.
The Exhibition will be open to the public, free of charge, from 14 to 21 October.
