A painting of my son Tommy, oil on canvas, was entered into the Fishers Ghost Art Competition. As a finalist, the painting was displayed in Campbelltown Arts Centre, I had my pieces displayed three years in a row.
Fisher’s Ghost Art Award is an annual art prize inviting artists to submit works in a variety of artistic categories and mediums.
The Fisher’s Ghost Art Award coincides with Campbelltown’s annual Festival of Fisher’s Ghost. Held over 10 days, the Festival dates back to 1956 and celebrates Australia’s most famous ghost – Frederick Fisher.
In the past the Open Award has been awarded to some of Australia’s most respected contemporary artists including Elisabeth Cummings, Khaled Sabsabi, Justene Williams, David Bromley, Marion Borgelt, Raquel Ormella, Philip Wolfhagen, Tina Havelock Stevens and most recently Brian Fuata.
