Celebration Time, Come on

Mission Arts Awards 2020

THE 2021 Mission Arts Awards and 10th Anniversary Exhibition will showcase the latest work from members of Mission Arts and artists from within the region. This will open at Mission Beach Community Arts Centre on Saturday, September 11. 

The 10th Anniversary Awards exhibition celebrates another year of successful operation at Mission Arts and is a unique opportunity for visitors to buy original works of art at affordable prices. The exhibition has always been a great exponent of the variation of art offered by our local and regional artists. This year’s awards, valued at $3,600, will be given in the 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 will also be awarded by our highly regarded Judge.

Mission Arts was opened in late August 2011, designed by Bark Architects, and funded by the Gillard Federal Government under their 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.

“There has always been a high standard and originality shown from all participants in past Award exhibitions. The talent that thrives within the Far North is quite exceptional,” Mission Arts Awards Coordinator, Sally Moroney, stated. “Opening night is a ticketed event, always a fun-filled evening, with entertainment and nibbles and an opportunity to meet the Artists. The wide-ranging talents of Artists ensures there will be something to delight all tastes.”
