About

The Australian Paper Tyers Art Festival will celebrate its 40th year, quite an amazing achievement, having grown from a small exhibition of local artists taking place in a local residence to becoming one of the major regional arts events in Gippsland, receiving entries from throughout Gippsland, Victoria, and beyond.

The Australian Paper Tyers Art Festival is held on the second weekend of November each year and this year will be on Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th November.
The Tyers Award ($2000) will again be offered in 2019, judged over all categories and mediums in the exhibition as well as the Graham Longmore Architectural Photography Award (in Black & White) with a 1st prize ($2000) and 2nd prize ($1000), along with our many other longstanding awards covering a range of mediums, including: Oil, Acrylic, Watercolours, Mixed Media, Pastel, Drawing, Photography, Scratch Art and Designer Craft

All works are judged prior to the exhibition. Successful nominations in each category will be announced at the gala opening event on Friday 8th November, and the exhibition will continue on Saturday 9th with the exhibition and Devonshire teas and Sunday 10th November with the exhibition and the Tyers Music, Food & Wine Festival. All artwork is available for purchase.
