Sonja Millis of Arthead is the founder of this competition. Sonja was inspired to begin the competition as a tribute to the legacy of Bob Millis who was an artist and art teacher who left us 5 years ago. Both Sonja and Bob have always felt a calling to provide a safe space to nurture and encourage people to participate in fine art.
The competition theme is set around the colour blue. The colour blue will appear somewhere in every work in the exhibition. All artists were asked to submit works in a square 407 x 407mm (16” x 16”) format.
People of all ages and stages in artmaking, from all areas of art practice, were encouraged to participate, through local press and social media promotions. The Blue Square Art Competition is all about inclusivity.
This exhibition is a tribute to every artist who has entered. It’s not so much a competition, but more a broad sweep of immense community spirit to assist in the work of ArtheartHQ in fundraising for CanAssist Southern Highlands. One third of all entry fees are being presented to CanAssist.
The Southern Highlands Branch of CanAssist, draws no administration fees, is a volunteer and not for profit organisation, offering direct and timely financial assistance to patients living with cancer who are residents of the Wingecarribee Shire.
We hope that you enjoy this exhibition, are inspired by how many people have entered and the wonderful diversity of creative expression from all ages. Each person in this exhibition has purposely made a current artwork and contributed to raising significant funds for CanAssist. All the artworks combined have come together to create an art installation in itself in this new exhibit space.
