In the early days, Catherine was a major supporter and sponsor of the event. Her love of the arts and desire to see BentART thrive was her main motivation.  Despite her challenging health issues Catherine loved to attend Opening night and did so without fail until her passing in 2019.  Catherine would be delighted to know that the “New Entrants Prize” will be awarded in her honour.

Remember this year the bentART exhibition will be a little different, well actually a lot different. For starters:

  • You will not need to bring your artwork to Wentworth Falls as all entries will be submitted online via the bentART website and displayed via a virtual gallery
  • Entries do not have to be For Sale, you choose if you wish to sell your art or just exhibit
  • bentART will not be taking commissions for any artworks sold
  • All artworks for sale will be direct with the artist
  • The exhibition will be able to be viewed worldwide
