How many exhibition works:
Our Beyond 20/20 show is a chance for individual artists to shine and aim to win a month-long solo show; generous commission, and cash prizes. Our expert jurors are acclaimed artists Yu, Chun-Hui and Ric Ambrose. We hope Beyond 20/20 can also be a showcase for how art can inspire, connect, and engage our whole community at a time when so many have been kept in isolation and disengaged.

First: $500, Second: $300, Third: $200
