The Thomas Somerscales Trophy is presented at the official opening of the Maritime Exhibition to the winning artist.
The opening event for the VAS Maritime Exhibition is on Saturday 28 October at 2pm.
This exhibition coincides with an exhibition by the Australian Society of Marine Artists (ASMA) in the VAS Frater Gallery. See more details here.
You can bring your artwork into the building for the VAS Maritime Exhibition on either:
Wednesday 25 October between 11am and 7pm or Thursday 26 October from 11am and before 2pm.
Members may submit up to 2 paintings and 3 sculptures.
For entries to be accepted into the VAS Maritime Exhibition, the work must follow a marine or maritime theme, that is, relating to, found or connected with the sea. This is quite broad and can include all manner of things including ships, boats and other types of watercraft either at sea or dry-docked, sea and coastal scenes, piers, harbours, marine equipment, people engaged in marine type activities etc.
The entry fee is $10 per artwork and can be paid at reception or by using the online entry form here.
Click on the link to view the instructional video below showing you how to enter your art work online. Online entries must be uploaded to the online gallery by Tuesday 24 October for processing.
Please note that this is a two step process. You must first upload your artwork to your profile, and then enter it into the exhibition. Simply uploading the work does not automatically enter it into the exhibition.
Remember to bring your artwork into the galleries if you enter the work online.
We would like to pay our respects to the traditional owners of the land on which our building stands, their leaders, past, present and emerging.
