celebrates its 14th year as the Greek Orthodox Community
of SA Inc. (GOCSA) once again presents a series of

The Celebration of Art:
As part of the Odyssey celebrations, once again the
organisers intend to feature the talented works of local
artists as part of the Art Exhibition, which is held
throughout the duration of the festival at its hub in
Franklin Street, Adelaide.
The organising committee is seeking expressions of
interest from young and new artists with a love for
Hellenic culture to display their works based on the
theme ‘Education Through Greek Arts’. The art work
selected by three prominent art judges, will be awarded
“The Odyssey Art Prize” of $1000 First Prize, $600
Second Prize and $400 Third Prize.
The committee is seeking creativity in all forms, be it
painting, drawing, print making, ceramics, sculpture or
any creative art form, with the theme of ‘Cultural
Destinations’ being interpreted any way the artist
wishes, be it relating it to modern day or historical.
The winning piece will become a permanent fixture in the
Greek Orthodox Community gallery and non-winning pieces
will be available for purchase.
The organisers request that your artwork be ready to
hang by Friday 27 September 2019, with the winner
announced at the launch on Friday 4th October 2019 at
Olympic Hall. For further information contact the GOCSA
office on 8231 4307.
