The 2014 Milburn Art Prize finalists exhibition will open on Friday 2 May at 6.30pm. Come along for the announcement of the 2014 Milburn Art Prize winner, and see a fine selection of the South East Queensland and North East New South Wales region's most talented emerging and established artists. Join us at the official opening for drinks and nibbles. Entry is free. We hope to see you there.

The exhibition continues until 4.00pm Wednesday 14 May.

Following last year's success in showcasing some of the regions most talented artists, entries have now closed for the 2014 Milburn Art Prize. The annual exhibition is open to all artists from SE Queensland and Northern NSW with a prize awarded for a 2D work including painting, drawing, printmaking and photography. This is an important community exhibition designed to encourage participation and competition between both professional and amateur artists. The Milburn Art Prize will discover new and exciting artistic talent, whilst also showcasing outstanding works by established artists. We hope that the Milburn Art Prize may be a springboard into the arts industry for many artists.
