The Mandorla Art Award employs a thematic spiritual inspiration that changes with each exhibition. These inspirations are defined by quotations from the Bible and all participating artists are requested to interpret these in their own way.
The next forum for artists will be held on Saturday 14 February 2015 from 2-4pm, in the Cathedral Room, Cardinal Knox Centre, 383 Albert Street East Melbourne (entrance via the Cathedral carpark). RSVP to Angela at firstname.lastname@example.org
Friday 9 January 2015, 2-5 pm, Mandorla Chairperson Angela McCarthy will be giving an introductory talk on the Mandorla Art Award 2016 at Indooroopilly Uniting Church, cnr. Station and Musgrave Rd, Indooroopilly (opposite Shoppingtown. Parking is behind the church off Musgrave Rd. or in the Shoppingtown car parks. The meeting will be on the middle floor of the church complex.)
This is the first in a series of forums across Australia to meet with artists interested in preparing for the prize. Angela plans to discuss the theme chosen for the 2016 prize and ways to approach it. A donation towards the cost of afternoon tea will be appreciated. RSVP to Geraldine Wheeler at email@example.com
