About the Australian Watercolour Muster

The ‘Australian Watercolour Muster’ is designed to give Australian Artists a broader platform to showcase our Artwork to the World, to create opportunities to interact with each other and international markets, and to share/exchange studios and exhibit where possible in this World

‘Submission’ of Work by Australian Watercolour Artists to this Australian Watercolour Muster, is also the way to be part of the annual selection process for FabrianoInAcquarello - Italy an amazing Meetup of over 86 Countries, and an opportunity to showcase your Artwork internationally.

Please Note This Update:

  • We have lifted the size restrictions – but if Artists want to participate in FabrianoInAcquarello – Italy 2020 their work will still have to be on a ½ sheet size paper – 56 x 38cm either landscape or portrait!

  • We have extended the Deadline to the 29th September 2019 – to allow new Artists to who think because of the lifting of the size they will participate and hunt through their portfolios!

Whats happening - 30’s and Under – 1 x selection prize which will be airfare and accommodation paid to go to Fabriano in May 2020 for FabrianoInAcquarello – plus working with a Mentor to take their 2D off the Wall into a functional design / fabric / cushions / furniture to help kickstart their careers.

** Please note however | if you would like to be juried to enter for FabrianoInAcqurello - Italy 2020 you still need to observe the Size of the Watercolour paper to be used for your Painting | It must be:

A 1/2 Sheet of Watercolour Paper size = 56 x 38 cm either portrait or landscape

You can tape in from the edge of the paper and leave a white margin around your work but the paper must be the 56 x 38cm size - we will sort the Australian Categories - during the Judging on this size for FabrianoInAcquarello - Italy 2020 Finalists.

The goal of the Gala Auction is to assist the Artists to sell their Work to enable their travel to Italy in May 2020. All Buyers will be asked to sign a 'Trust' to allow the Artwork to travel as our 'Australian Showcase' to Italy for the Exhibition in May 2020!
