Artists like Christopher Trotter whose iconic kangaroos rest on George Street in Brisbane’s CBD, have made careers from repurposing objects into spectacular works of art and now Noosa Regional Gallery is calling on local artists to try their hand.
Inspired by council’s Toward Zero Waste campaign, ArtCycle 2017 challenges entrants to repurpose rubbish or old unwanted items into art as part of this year’s Floating Land festival.
Winners of the competition have the chance to win $2000 first prize, $1500 for second and $500 for third with the people’s vote deciding the winners.
Gallery co-ordinator Nicole Maggs said, “Any artist whose entry is shortlisted will receive up to $100 toward the cost of any materials they bought from the Tip Top Shop and up to $50 toward any materials bought from garage sales or op-shops,” Gallery co-ordinator Nicole Maggs said.
“Similar competitions elsewhere have produced some simply stunning sculptures, so we’re excited to see what weird and wonderful works of art Noosa residents can create,” Ms Maggs said.
People can view the short-listed pieces and cast their vote between 9 September and 15 October at Noosa Regional Gallery.
Original works of art, sculpture, assemblage and jewellery or functional accessories are eligible to be entered. They must be made from reused or recycled materials. Entries close on 10 July 2017.
