Annual Awards

The Townsville Art Society has held an annual or biannual Arts exhibition since its inception, and The Townsville Art Society’s Awards Exhibition is now a major exhibition in the cultural life of the City.
Held in the City of Townsville’s Perc Tucker Regional Gallery, it provides an opportunity for North Queensland artists, who are affiliated with an Art Society, to display their work in a major gallery and also to compete for prizes.



The Townsville Art Society Inc gratefully acknowledges all of our sponsors for these prestigious awards. 

The 63rd Townsville Art Society Awards and the Townsvillle Open Award will be held at the Perc Tucker Regional Gallery between 28 September to 21 October 2018.  (More information available soon) 

The 62st Townsville Art Society Awards together with the Townsville Open Award were exhibited at Perc Tucker Regional Gallery in 2017. (Photos under the "Awards Gallery" Tab)
