Pop-Up Gallery Exhibition

Saturday 15th September - Sunday 18th November

The Pop-Up Gallery exhibition concentrates on past winners of the Caltex/NT Art Award (CAAS; 1968 – 2003) and the Alice Prize (ASAF; 1970 – present), investigating both art prizes and their significant role in bringing the work of artists, from diverse backgrounds and regions, to Alice Springs for the benefit of the community.

The Caltex/NT Art Award concentrates on NT based artists while the Alice Prize includes artists working across the nation and through this exhibition visitors will have the opportunity to view works from each prize side by side. In this way, visitors gain insights into the works exhibited in each prize, the judged winners, providing an avenue for people to make their own responses to the winning works.

The exhibition will feature a broad cross-section of works from the Collection, highlighting historical trends within each Prize and increases awareness of the Collection and the value of these prizes in realising this unique body of work. The exhibition appeals to a wide audience and creates avenues for discussion. The majority of artworks are acquired by the Central Australian Art Society and the Alice Springs Art Foundation and are donated to the Town Council for the people of Alice Springs. These artworks form part of the Araluen Art Collection.

Venue: 2a 70 Todd Street (entry off Gregory Terrace)
