  • Wednesday 02 October 2013

Sunshine Coast Council invites everyone from first time art buyers to art buffs to head to Caloundra Regional Gallery from 2pm on Sunday 13 October to secure affordable, quality art at the inaugural Sunshine Coast Art Prize (SCAP) Art Auction.

Forty contemporary Australian artworks from the 2013 SCAP 2D and 3D exhibitions will go to the highest bidder on the day at the inaugural SCAP Art Auction. This is a unique opportunity for those interested in art to acquire original pieces at auction prices.

The two-dimensional works include paintings, drawings, photography and digital prints across a range of genres. While the three-dimensional artworks cover a range of media forms from traditional and decorative to beautiful conceptual sculptures created from found objects, recycled materials and new-media.

This is an opportunity to pick up original artworks at very affordable prices. International Art Services will also be on hand to arrange freight from the gallery to your door, to make your buying experience simple and hassle free.

SCAP is produced by Sunshine Coast Council to encourage artistic excellence and to bring quality artwork to a regional audience. The award provides a distinguished contribution to the national art calendar, attracting talented artists from around the country to enter contemporary 2D and 3D art.

SCAP pre-auction viewing is available Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 4pm, or by appointment. SCAP 2D is located at Caloundra Regional Gallery, 22 Omrah Avenue, Caloundra and SCAP 3D (viewing available until 12 October) at Noosa Regional Gallery, Riverside, Pelican Street, Tewantin.
