North Queensland Ceramic Awards - Call For Artists


Closure Notice
Following the Federal Government’s new social distancing restrictions, Council has made the decision to close the Perc Tucker Regional Gallery to the public in order to help slow the spread of coronavirus effective from 6pm, Wednesday 25 March 2020.

The biennial North Queensland Ceramic Awards has long aimed to increase public exposure to a high standard of pottery from around the nation. A showcase for both well-known and emerging artists, this competition displays the diversity of ceramic art currently being produced in Australia.

The City of Townsville Art Collection Award of $10,000 continues to provide both opportunity for artists to become a part of one of the nation’s most significant ceramic collections, as well as ensuring the continued growth of this important subsection of the City of Townsville Art Collection.

Selected works will be on display at Pinnacles Gallery from 17 July – 13 September 2020 and will be eligible in various categories beyond the major City of Townsville Art Collection Award.
