Opening Night Event
From the 4th to the 7th October 2019 the Obi Art Prize will be held at the Maleny Community Centre.
On Friday 4th October at 6pm, the IGA/Spida Production $5000 first prize will also be announced. You will also have a chance to meet our very special guest National Treasure, and Australian legend, Indigenous elder, actor, musician, activist, gifted storyteller Uncle Jack Charles.
You will be able to pre-view and/or pre-purchase any of the finalist paintings for this years art prize and cast your vote for the Ken Mills Toyota $1500 people’s choice award.
This award will be announced at the end of the night along with the winner of the raffle prize painting by Australian Indigenous artist Jandamarra Cadd which was kindly donated by Colin Dixon of Spida Productions. Jandamarra’s artwork is emotive and insightful – and is a powerful medium to bridge the storytelling divide between Aboriginal and mainstream Australia.
Tickets are $30 and can be purchased on-line or at the door on the night.
