The Western College Art Prize makes its biennial appearance next week.

The WCAP (as we so gently call it) is the only open, competitive individual exhibition the WPCC organises and we are as happy as a pig in clover to be on board for this third iteration.

For each running of WCAP, Western College chooses a word from its list of core values to which artists must respond. This year the word is Inclusion. Given where we are at the moment with “Team Australia, lifters and leaners” this promises to be a fascinating glimpse into what the people of the region see as being inclusive.

The WCAP grows in quality every year – everybody should come down and have a look when it opens to the public on Saturday, October 18, with the official opening on Friday 24 at 6.00 pm, including the announcement of the winner of the acquisitive first prize.
