The iconic Robe Institute will once again play host to the SOAP opening night this year.

2015 Winner: Robe District Council Award Jacqui Bateman – “Young Salt”.

The night is set for October 28at 7pm. Open to the public, opening night is set to achieve a number of things. The event provides a great opportunity for locals, traveling spectators, contributors and sponsors to celebrate and be a part of a diverse exhibition of regional artworks on display.

Also on offer will be a mixture of Robe andMt Benson wines as well as beer from Robe Town Brew and a selection of finger foods from Cantina Kick.This year’s event will open at 7pm with live acoustic tunes allowing for public perusal of the exhibition. Following this will be the commencement of speeches made by the committee, sponsors and of course judges with the announcements of the 2016 prizes.

The 2016 Judges are announced: This year will see the return of the jovial and enthusiastic Anthony Mckee – a professional photographer from Melbourne who is always impressed with the photographic entries. Alongside him will be Penola’s very own Dagny Strand – a professional of both sculpture and 2D works. Hugo Michell, an Adelaide gallery owner and director of an innovative and contemporary space will round out the diverse team of three.

2015 Winner: Photography David Summerhayes “An Egret takes flight near Fox Lake – Robe.

A number of new things have happened this year, and we are keen to observe public interest and feedback. SOAP must be designed to be an event supportive of every artist regardless of background and profession, and we want to continue to make this event an attraction to everyone involved.

In my commitment to this cause, I have reduced both entry fees and commission on sales this year. Additionally, size restrictions have been increased and a youth’s peoples choice award has been introduced – all in direct response to public suggestion.

I am particularly excited to see entries into the Robe District Council sponsored Award of “Changing Climate, Changing Environments”. This progressive category should unveil some creative representation of both the natural world and some of the global challenges we have ahead of us.

Back again this year – with support from the Morgan family – the Belinda Morgan Memorial Prize which will award local talent from the Limestone Coast.Opening night is free of charge to all participating artists, as well as event sponsors. All other spectators will need to buy a ticket at the door for $15 – which includes a raffle ticket, wine and nibbles, as well as entrance into the 2016 exhibition.

There is still time to enter this year’s prize!Entry forms are made available at several local Robe venues as well as online at梧桐夜网southernoceanartprize.weebly南京夜网.
