With a little less than two month to go to the Coleambally Food and Farm Festival the planning and organising is full steam ahead. The program of the biennial event is bigger and better than ever and the visitors can expect a wide variety of entertainment, arts and agriculture in and around Coleambally from the 21st to the 23rd of October.
This year there will be a new addition to the festival - the Taste Coleambally Art Precinct, which will showcase a range of artistic events, dance classes, workshops, open mics and an art exhibition. The Festival also invites regional artists to showcase and/or sell quality handmade original wares at there "Meet the Makers" Stall to create an interactive art space. Spectators will be able to watch varied artists at work.
Artists of the region can also enter their original artwork in the Taste Art Prize 2016. All mediums are welcome and the artists should create an original piece that interprets the theme “Flora, Fauna and Farming” in the local area. Melbourne artist Linda MacAulay and Western Riverina Arts RADO Derek Motion will be judging the art competition with winners announced at the opening Cocktail Party off the art exhibition on October 21. The winner will be rewarded $500 by Western Riverina arts.
Entry forms for the Taste Art Prize 2016 must be submitted by 4 pm, Friday 30th September. Find the form HERE
