The Western Downs Regional Artists’ Exhibition Entries OPEN

Rural Realities

Reality is the state of things as they exist. It may sound absolute and irrefutable, but it isn’t one universal experience. From the physical environment, societal ties between people, to the emotional challenges and victories that are endured, there are many different realities. Reality can be sweet or harsh but is always complex, changing and diverse.

As residents of the predominately rural Western Downs Region, this theme invites Artists to reflect on their life and how their rural context shapes their reality. When exploring the subject matter Artists are encouraged to communicate their visual stories through their selected medium and depict a creative view on country living in contemporary society.
