Artists of the Valley & Gorman's Art Gallery – Casterton

Group of Artists from Casterton, country Victoria, and further afield in Australia

Kelpie Roundup

On the Queen’s Birthday long weekend, here in Casterton, visitors would be hard put to not see a Kelpie or fifty.  With an influx of people for the annual Kelpie Muster and auction, the unique Aussie breed of pooch is the star, ‘coming home’ to its birthplace.  Kelpies are celebrated in living examples and in art.  The Casterton Kelpie Association Acquisitive Art Competition, held each year in conjunction with the Muster, draws entries from around the country, and of course, from local artists.

Artists of the Valley members once again took up the banner in depicting these lovely dogs in a broad range of settings and mediums, with many of the entries being acknowledged by this year’s judge, Helen Ruma.

This year’s Local Artist Prize was awarded to one of our own, Jenn White, for her reduction woodcut print ‘His Day is Done’.
