Held annually over two weeks, including Easter, the Tumut Art Society annual Art show always attracts entries from around Australia.

Tumut has a very strong reputation as one of the strongest and most competitive regional art shows in New South Wales. We are well supported by Sydney artists and beyond and the skill of the artists represented is tremendous, we again have received many innovative and powerful art works.

Gallery curator Jennie Forster

Landscape paintings usually dominate regional shows with still life, animals, portraits, abstracts as well as urban scenes and seascapes hung on Sunday by an enthusiastic band of volunteers. This group also voted on the ‘Hanger’s Choice’ which will be revealed on the opening night

A visit to our local art space is a must for all creatives and those who just like to look. All paintings will be for sale.

Winner 2021 Kasey Sealy ‘Tidal Backwater, Urunga’

WINNER SECTION 1: Snowy Valleys Shire Award (Any Medium) – 2021

No: 138 Kasey Sealy ‘Tidal Backwater, Urunga’

Judges comment:
The most sensitive use of oil paint with so many subtle tone yet holds together as a complete work. Everything about this piece is understated and subtle except for the intense Cerulean in the sky juxtaposing against the warm gold of the water. This work represents traditional Australian imagery.
