Online exhibition for the Tyers Art Festival 2021

1-30 November 2021

Artwork at the Tyers Art Festival


In 2021, given the continuing impacts of COVID-19, the Opal Australian Paper Tyers Art Festival will be once again holding an online exhibition of art and have made the difficult decision to cancel the Tyers Food & Wine Festival for 2021.

The Opal Australian Paper Tyers Art Festival commenced in 1979 and continues to grow drawing entries from across Gippsland, Victoria and beyond. The art exhibition has, over many years, exhibited over 550 artworks across a range of mediums, 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.
In 2021 the Tyers Art Festival – Online Exhibition will have a limit of 550 entries. We’re excited to see everyone’s submissions and will be offering three major Awards, three encouragement awards as well as a popular vote right here on the online exhibition, where the general public will be able to cast their vote for their favourite piece.

Click below for more details on the art prizes available, the sponsors, how to submit your artwork and how to vote. For our artists, please ensure you read the exhibition Terms and Conditions as well as specifications for submitting artwork.

We hope you enjoyed our 2021 online exhibition!

We are most appreciative of the ongoing support we receive from so many artists, both local and further  afield, and look forward to seeing what amazing artworks are submitted."
