Entries are now open for the 29th Annual Mayoral Art Exhibition.

The theme for 2024 is Tangent.

This year, artists are encouraged to think differently and experiment with their subjects, materials or techniques. From realism to abstraction or traditional to contemporary (or the reverse) we invite you to investigate new ideas and directions.

Artworks of all mediums are eligible to enter including photography, sculpture, drawing, painting, printmaking and ceramics.

Artists of all ages are encouraged to enter.

Exhibition details

The exhibition will be held at Maroondah Federation Estate Gallery from 2 April to 4 May 2024.

All eligible artworks will be exhibited and a number of works will be selected for the Mayoral Acquisition and the Ringwood East and Croydon Community Bank Acquisition.

Announcement of both acquisitions will be made at the exhibition opening on Thursday 4 April 2024.
