Location: Mission Arts, MARCS Park, Mission Beach
Join us as the Mission Beach Community Arts Centre (Mission Arts) celebrates 10 years of bringing creative opportunities to the people of Mission Beach and the surrounding areas. Since opening its doors to the community in 2011, Mission Arts has showcased the works of talented local & regional artists in an annual awards exhibition. Prized awards, made possible through corporate sponsorships and contributions by local businesses and individuals, are extended to artists in various categories. This year's awards, valued at $3600, were given in 2D, 3D and Youth (18 and Under) categories. The Mission Arts Anniversary Award (given to a local Cassowary Coast artist), Open Award, and People's Choice Award were also awarded by our highly-regarded Judge Anneke Silver.
The Mission Arts 10th Anniversary Awards Exhibition opened at Mission Beach Community Arts Centre on Saturday, 11 September.
The 10th Anniversary Awards Exhibition celebrates another year of successful operation at Mission Arts. The exhibition includes diverse works from artists across the region and is a unique opportunity for visitors to buy original works of art at affordable prices. The art featured in the exhibition includes several themes of focus including local scenes, figurative, flora and fauna, photographic and sculpture.
Mission Arts opened in late August 2011 and was designed by Bark Architects and funded by the Federal Government's Economic Stimulus Package. Mission Arts is proud that it is a professional, attractive, comfortable and very functional venue. It plays an important cultural role in the Cassowary Coast community, promoting the Arts, and providing a focal point for artists to meet and where everyone can join in social activities.
“Opening night was our 10th year celebration and it lived up to our expectations of delivering high standard and original artwork from artistic talent in the Far North. The exhibition is quite exceptional , vibrant and dynamic.” Mission Arts Awards Exhibition Coordinator, Sue Shannon stated.
