SASI ART Exhibition and Competition 2017
Statewide Autistic Services Inc. is raising the bar for creatives with a disability. SASI’s annual art exhibition is in its fourth year and is growing in popularity. This inclusive event is set to impress with a celebration of outstanding artwork once again.
SASI is inviting people with a disability to submit their artwork.
“The art show is a great opportunity to showcase the high level of hidden talent in the community. Says Kath Ferry, SASI’s CEO. “We’re excited to be part of an event where people with a disability can bring their work into a public forum. “
This year entries for the SASI Art Show will be open from Monday the 6th of November to Friday the 10th of November. Entrants may submit up to three two-dimensional pieces with a cost of $10 per entry.
Frankston’s Cube 37 gallery will host the exhibition which opens on Wednesday the 8th. The show will run until Thursday the 10th of November with a prize giving that evening from 6pm – 8pm. Frankston’s Mayor will open this exciting event.
There are three prizes up for grabs for those willing to put their creative skills to the test.
The first prize is the prestigious Alfred Murfey Prize given in honour of one of SASI’s founding members. SASI assists children, teenagers and adults with autism and complex disabilities. The organisation has been in existence for almost 50 years.
Two more talented artists will also receive an award. The wider community will choose a People’s Choice Award winner, while the gallery will select a winner for its Packer’s Prize.
“We’d love the community to support this event and all entrants. We invite visitors to vote for their choice in the People’s Choice Award,“ said Ms Ferry.
