The Polish Art Foundation - International Drawing Biennale

Opening: Saturday 11 November at 7.00pm

The Polish Art Foundation (PAF) is a not -for -profit voluntary organisation that is dedicated to showcasing contemporary art to the Australian community since 1977.                                

Some 18 years ago the Foundation committed to the establishment of a dedicated bi-annual International Drawing Competition (Biennale) to emphasise the significance and role of drawing as an art form among both established and emerging contemporary artists in today's society. 

To date we have been delighted to have had the opportunity to exhibit at the Victorian Artists' Society Galleries and enable us to showcase the International Drawing Biennale's select works at this important arts hub. In this way allowing the Melbourne visitors as well as students to enjoy a unique cultural exchange right at their door step.  

This event, open to both local and international entries, provides a unique window into the exclusive world of drawing in all its forms enabling an exchange of ideas and trends among artists from all corners of the globe.

The competition final presents usually up to 65 works that have been previously selected by an appointed jury. The Foundation receives entries from established and emerging artists from as far places as Asia, Europe and America. 

As an organisation we encourage the active participation of emerging artists who maybe first time entrants into the unique and enchanting space that is the artistic community. Our exhibitions have proven to be a valuable stepping stone for several young artists who are working towards establishing themselves in the Australian art market. It is also important to note that many participating artists return to the Biennale as they continue to evolve on their own unique artistic journey.   

The Foundation also works in partnership with other arts bodies and agencies including Multicultural Arts Victoria and The Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in Sydney.
