POSTPONED – 2020 YOUNG ARTISTS COMPETITION

We’re so very disappointed to advise that given current conditions we are forced to postpone the 2020 Young Artists Competition which was scheduled for early April as part of Youth Week activities.


We’ve run this event in partnership with Sydney Art School for the last six years and provided lots of opportunities for the next generation of local artists to enjoy their first competition and exhibition. 


We want to keep this event going for many years to come. However, following continued spread of COVID-19 and the ongoing changes to public events issued by the Commonwealth and State Departments of Health, we’ve taken the decision that in the interests of all involved: our volunteers, the parents and families and our young artists themselves our most prudent approach is to postpone the event at this time.


We won’t use the word cancel; our competition is simply postponed – and you can rest assured we will be staging this event as soon as we can, depending on government guidelines. 


For those of you budding young artists at home – please use this time to prepare your work. The theme and the guidelines will not change, simply the timing of the exhibition.  Make use of this delay to prepare a truly spectacular work (or more than one: remember you can enter up to three works), research your theme and expand your creative imagination and artistic talents to focus on the theme of ‘space.’


For those of you who are looking for options at home, please be aware that starting in Term 2, Sydney Art School will be offering virtual web-based art classes starting on 28 April.  if you’d like more information please follow them on Facebook via the link or check out their website: https://sydneyartschool.com.au/


We hope that you all support our decision which we believe is in everyone’s best interest in these challenging times.  Our thanks for your understanding.

The team at Hornsby Art Society
