Spotlight on bentART

bentArt Inc. aims to encourage, promote and support LGBTIQ visual art by holding an Annual four-day art exhibition over the June Long Weekend  in the Blue Mountains. The Annual bentART Visual Art Exhibition, supports entries from beginning, emerging and professional LGBTI artists across Australia. The event contributes to the breaking down of prejudices and stereotypes and contributes to a civil society where diversity is respected. 

bentART Incorporated is a not-for-profit organisation, the management committee is comprised of community members who volunteer their time to the running of bentART. The judges, curator and volunteers who assist over the exhibition weekend all also give their time freely.

This year a LINC grant was awarded to bentArt and was used to cover some of the catering cost of the opening night event, supporting a LGTBQI+ inclusive space.
