Pearl Beach Arboretum has extended the closing date for expressions of interest in the Pearl Beach Ephemeral Art Trail until Sunday, April 24.
"Artists are invited to submit expressions of interest for pre-selection in an Ephemeral Art Trail to be staged in the Pearl Beach Arboretum," said Arboretum secretary Ms Mary Knaggs.
"The Ephemeral Art Trail will take place over five weeks from Saturday, June 11, to Sunday, July 17."Approximately 20 ephemeral artworks will be selected for display, responding to the theme Only One Earth, the theme for World Environment Day 2022."
A total of $5000 are being offered, with a $3000 first prize, and $1000 for Highly Commended and for the People's Choice Award.
"The finalists will be selected by a curatorial panel comprising members of the Arboretum committee, with the successful applicants being notified by April 29.
"During the first weeks of installation the works will be judged by Tim Braham, director of Gosford Regional Gallery, with the winners announced at a prize-giving event with music and dance on Saturday, July 9.
"A few ephemeral art positions in the Arboretum will be reserved for local schools or community groups should they take up the challenge.
"You only need to fill in the form, provide a sketch and description and pay the small entry fee at this stage.
"Works are not installed until between Saturday, June 4, and Friday, June 10.
