59 local artists will showcase their work at a new exhibition at the Bunbury Regional Art Gallery this month.

South West Art Now will open on Saturday February 24 with a free community launch party, with cash bar, live entertainment and an entry ticket to the Fringe Finale party afterwards.

One artist will win an $8000 prize for their work, which will then be kept in the City of Bunbury's Art Collection.

Artwork will also be open to voting for a People's Choice award.

“The work undertaken by BRAG curator Alisa Blakeney - visiting artists in their studios, interviewing and photographing them - has created an exhibition and accompanying publication which will guide those who are interested in the art of our region for some time to come,” BRAG director Julian Bowron said.

South West Art Now opens at BRAG on 24 February, and will run until 13 May. BRAG is open 10am to 4pm every day with free entry.
