The Vasse Art Award (VAA) exhibition offers the art lover a unique opportunity to purchase diverse artworks from established and emerging artists.

Returning in April 2018, the event will feature an array of new and vibrant visual art from acrylics, inks, oils and watercolour to sculpture and mixed-media.

Vasse Primary School principal Sinan Kerimofski said the school was thrilled to host the event once again and to watch the school transform

What began as a small fundraiser for Vasse Primary School in 2004, the Art Award continues to challenge, involve and inspire young people, local residents and the wider community.

“The event is now nationally recognized and provides much-needed funds for our school. Our students really enjoy the authentic art experiences when they visit the exhibition during the day,” Mr Kerimofski explained.

 

VAA Committee member Anna Couzic said she was excited to be part of an event that had such a creative and positive impact on the Vasse Primary School and community.

“It’s rewarding to know the funds raised from the event will enrich our children’s education, and all future students who attend the school,” Mrs Couzic said.

The VAA generates significant social and economic benefit for the community and ultimately aims to:

  • Increase the capacity of Local artists to present and sell their work
  • Build more cultural infrastructure in the region
  • Create opportunities for organisations and groups to share knowledge and experiences
  • Support business mentorships and volunteer development
  • Foster curatorial skills development

The VAA Committee will continue to raise the profile of the event to attract more national and international artists while giving local artists a platform to showcase their work.
