We have been advised by Essential Energy that a scheduled power outage will effect the Coolamon township on Sunday 11th September 2022.

The committee of Up2Date Art have made the decision to close the 2022 Art Exhibition on Saturday 10th September at 4pm. This decision has been made out of safety to the public as the Coolamon township will have no power on Sunday 11th September from 6am – 12pm.

To the best of our knowledge, there will also be no businesses open to provide meals or coffee on Sunday afternoon due to this outage.

We will pull down the exhibition on Sunday morning, if you have purchased an artwork, it can be collected from the Up-to-Date Store from 12.30pm on Sunday 11th September.

We take this opportunity to thank you for your understanding.


2022 Entry Forms and Artist Information are now available.   We look forward to receiving your entry
