Pre-Selection and Curation

Pre-Selection and Curation Procedures

Pre-Selection Panel

    • Each year the Organisers will appoint a Pre-Selection panel to review entries.
    • The Panel will initially review and assess all submissions received, and will decide which works will be invited to exhibit during the Australian Watercolour Muster each year.
    • The Final Curators of the 'Muster' may or may not be part of the Pre-Selection Panel.
    • All decisions on acceptances are final and no correspondence or discussion will be entered into.
    • Artists will be notified which of their works have been accepted to be exhibited prior to the opening of the 'Muster'.

'Muster' Curation

    • Each year the Organisers appoint an external Australian Watercolour Muster - Panel of Curators

    • The Panel of Curators will select a determined number of Artworks to be showcased on the Australian Watercolour Muster Digital Gallery Online - 2020
    • In addition the Panel of Curators will choose from the four (4) Categories for Entry below - One Artist from each Category, as 'Best in Category' and these Artists will be offered a Solo Exhibition to be held in Australian Watercolour Muster/Fish Lane Studios Exhibition Gallery - 4 Edmondstone Street - South Brisbane Queensland Australia 4101 - during an agreed 2 Weeks each over the period of the year 2021:

** Please refer to the 'Acceptable Artworks Section' and 'Terms and Conditions' on this website for the full details under each of these Categories.

Other nominated prizes are to be advised by the opening of the 'Call For Artists' on the 5th June 2020.

All Artist private information is held securely with bank details encrypted and not available to staff of Gallery 247. We do not share your personal information with any third party.

*** Please note - because of the disruption of the current Covid19 Pandemic the current 32 Australian Artists nominated to have their Work showcased in FabrianoInAcquarello - Italy 2020 will be showcased Digitally in 2020 and we anticipate, world health allowing, there will be a physical Exhibition of their Work (which is already in Italy) during April/May 2021. For this reason we anticipate that we will not, be nominating an additional group of Australian Artist's Work from this 2020 Australian Watercolour Muster to go to Italy, however we do want to be prepared if this decision is changed. For this reason we are including a Full and 1/2 Sheet Section in the 4 Categories for Entry to this Digital Showcase 2020 - and any Artist that submits Work on a 1/2 sheet will be held at the ready, as a nomination should the opportunity arise to send more Work to Italy in 2021.
