The Shire of Derby/West Kimberley President Geoff Haerewa said that the 50th anniversary of the Kimberley Art Prize in 2021 will see the arts and photographic exhibition under the same roof again, and for the first time ever, the exhibition will be held at the Derby Airport terminal building with the opening night kicking off proceedings on Saturday 3 July 2021 from 6.30pm.

Anyone interested in making a purchase on opening night will be able to do so after the award presentations have finished, which commence at 7pm.

The exhibition will then open daily, from 10am-4pm, until Sunday 18 July 2021, and works will also be able to be purchased during the exhibition. 

You are also welcome to cast your People's Choice vote either on opening night or throughout the exhibition. The entry fee to opening night and the exhibition is a gold coin donation and $2 per catalogue.

“The Shire has facilitated the Kimberley Art Prize since its inception in 1970 and over that time has acquired approximately 50 artworks which will also be on display on opening night until the end of exhibition,” Cr Haerewa said.

“It will be incredible to see these artworks together on display in one unique space, along with the more than 200 works expected to be entered this year to mark the 50th anniversary.”
