Welcome to The d’Arcy Doyle Art Awards
Established in 2004, The d’Arcy Doyle Art Awards immediately proved itself as one of the top visual art awards, not only in Queensland but further afield.
This Awards has also attracted many art buyers as a large variety of good quality art is on display. The primary category is ‘Landscape’, with other categories being ‘Still Life’ and ‘Portrait/Figures’.
The 1st Prize winner of the 2011 Landscape Award, Geoff Hale, said “over the past few years I have watched ‘The Doyles’ grow in size and reputation, and it has rapidly become an important cultural event for Mudgeeraba as well as the emerging and professional artists nationwide who
participate. The quality selection of artworks exhibited at this
event each year is certainly a drawcard.”
Despite the wet night more than 300 people braved the weather to attend the opening of the 2013 d’Arcy Doyle Art Awards at the Mudgeeraba Memorial Hall. The event was opened by Gold Coast City Councillor Glenn Tozer. One of the judges, Lorraine Rogers, spoke of the exceptionally high standard of the 400 works on display while the Event Director, Earle Hinschen, sang the praises of the local Gold Coast artists competing against so many interstate and international artists.
In order to promote the 2013 Awards, we kicked off with “d’Arcy Doyle Invitational Golf Day” on 13 October 2012.
The second Invitational Golf Day on Sat 22 June was another successful “fun” day with lovely weather.
Thank you to Tallai Country Club for their support towards The Doyles.
