Sorell Regional Art Prize and Exhibition

The 2021 Sorell Regional Art Exhibition was open daily from Saturday 27 November to Tuesday 30 November. There was approx. 100 pieces of art to view across 6 categories.

The Sorell Council Art Acquisition Prize for 2021 was awarded to Charles Mace for his oil painting of the historic Blue Bell Inn titled ‘Beginnings.’

In 2021 we commemorate the 200 year anniversary of the naming of the Sorell Township by Governor Lachlan Macquarie, so the theme of this year’s exhibition was 1821 – 2021: 200 Years of Sorell.

This painting wonderfully portrays one of our historically significant buildings and serves the theme impressively.

Congratulations to Charles and all the artists involved in the exhibition!

A special thank you to the event sponsors and Saakia and all at South East Arts for making this wonderful community event possible.
