Visual Stories Art Competition & Exhibition

Each year, the Visual Stories Art Competition and Exhibition forms an exciting part of the Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival with unique works displayed for a month over the festival period in the foyer of Margaret River HEART.

The creative theme for the Margaret River Readers & Writers Festival 2022 is NO WORD LIMIT and artists are invited to submit works that bring this theme to life and communicate the unstoppable power of storytelling at a time where our lives are subject to so many limitations.

Work can be submitted in any artistic medium and artists are encouraged to be brave and challenging and create works that will stimulate conversations, change perspectives, and give the viewers joy.

The exhibition will be on display in the Margaret River HEART foyer gallery from Tuesday 3rd May 2022 to Tuesday 31st May 2022 (*may be extended into June).
