The Three Faces Portrait Competition is back again in 2021.
Expressions of Interest from adult and youth artists will be published in March and these are due on April 6.
Three successful artists from the two categories will be notified in time for the first event, ‘The Reveal,’ which is on Friday, May 7 when the mystery sitter, selected from Mansfield’s Citizen of the Year, will be introduced.
At this event the public also observe how an artist goes about starting a portrait with photographs and sketches in pencil or paint.
The second event, ‘The Unveiling’, is on Thursday, June 10 when the winning adult and youth portraits will be chosen jointly by the Shire Mayor and a representative from the Benalla Art Gallery.
The total prize money of $3,200 for the original major awards will again be sponsored by the Mansfield Shire Council.
The Expression of Interest form for artists can be found here.
