The Singleton Art Prize

Dates will be finalised in April.

The Singleton Art Prize is presented by The Singleton on Hunter Rotary Club. 

The Singleton Art Prize is a major event on the cultural calendar of Singleton and has a prize pool of over $20.000. It has been running for more than 36 years and is currently organised by a committee of the Singleton on Hunter Rotary Club. It is well supported by the business community, Council and the general public with over 1500 people attending the opening night and 5 days of exhibition.

Held in July each year. The artwork is sourced from all over the country and is very well supported with over 600 works of art on display. It is also the favored Art Prize for many artists, as we sell more works of art than any other regional Art Prize/Exhibition.

The work of art which wins the major prize is acquisitive and is donated to the Singleton Collection, with the collection holding more than 89 works and displayed through the council building and library. The collection is valued at over $1.5 million and includes a valuable Margaret Olly work.

The Singleton Art Prize is the major visual arts event of the year in Singleton and helps to foster a growing appreciation and involvement in the arts. A section within the Singleton Art Prize is set-aside solely for the artists from the Singleton local government area.The opening night is a significant social event on the Singleton calendar.
