The 2014 CCAS Members Exhibition
August 15th & 16th CCAS Gorman House
Opening 6pm Friday 15th August

Every year the CCAS members Show has a distinguished judge and 2014 is no exception. After many years Shane Breynard is finally able to squeeze this prestigious gig into his tight schedule. Shane is currently the director of the Canberra Museum and Gallery and ACT Historic Places. Before CMAG Shane was arts adviser to former Chief Minister Jon Stanhope and has a long history of involvement in the ACT art scene both as an artist and curator. He is a jolly nice fellow and you can get to know him better on Twitter @shanebreynard

THE THEME of this years members show is self portraiture – what could be easier ? what could be more current ? #selfie reflects the times in which we live and will be a kind of Archibald where self promo is not only allowed but encouraged.

REMEMBER that when you enter a work in #selfie you are supporting CCAS and this is much appreciated in these times of budgetary restraint. Whatever happens you will feel good, have fun, hopefully sell a work (no commission) and one lucky competitor will go down in the annals of CCAS history joining an exclusive club of local creatives.

IMPORTANT For new artists it is a way to get your work noticed and many success stories begin right here.

Everything you wanted to know about #selfie is HERE and in the mean time take a walk down memory lane with some images below of previous winners to tempt you.
