APA artist Jacob Cartelli has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Calleen Art Award.
The Calleen Art Award is an acquisitive art prize that awards its winner $20,000, provided through the generosity of the Calleen Trust. The artwork also becomes part of the Calleen Collection at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery.
Jacob Cartelli is an emerging artist working in acrylic and pencil on paper and canvas. His paintings juxtapose colour, while the formal elements fuse to form a rich, saturated field in the style of gestural abstraction. Cartelli has worked at Arts Project since 2015.
Cartelli was one of 47 finalists drawn from 407 entries from artists across Australia. The selected artworks will be exhibited at the Cowra Regional Art Gallery from 24 October to 5 December 2021.
