Barb Sartori Memorial Prize
In honour of a much missed member of the King Valley Art Show the organising committee have funded the $1000 Barb Sartori Memorial Prize. Barb was an energetic, positive and loving driving force on the committee and in the King Valley as a whole. With the permission of her family we have instigated this art prize in her memory. The theme is the King Valley which she loved so well. We are looking for works that evoke the King Valley in any and every way imaginable. We wish to be delightfully surprised by innovative interpretations of this deliberately broad theme just as Barb delightfully surprised us time after time. Artists be bold!
