NAKED AND NUDE EXHIBITION AT MANNING VALLEY ART GALLERY

This exhibition is held every two years and is well worth a view.  I have really enjoyed both exhibitions I have seen since coming to the area.

Sydney Morning Herald Art Critic and Judge of the 2015 Manning Art Prize, John McDonald, announced the winners at the highly anticipated gala opening of the Manning Art Prize: Naked & Nude on Saturday 12 September.

The winner of the major $10,000 Acquisitive Prize for most outstanding work in the exhibition was Robert Malherbe for his oil painting ‘Woman in a Black Coat’. Robert is from the small town of Blackheath in the Blue Mountains and is an exciting artist who specialises in landscapes and nudes.

Come along to the Gallery to see following finalists and prize-winners in the Manning Art Prize: Naked & Nude exhibition 2015. The exhibition will be open during normal Gallery hours until 25 October 2015. And while you’re here, don’t forget to vote for the People’s Choice Award, which will be announced at the conclusion of the exhibition period. Entry is $5.
