Little Things Art Prize was founded by Marnie Ross in 2015. Artists are invited to submit creative expressions of the ‘Little Things’ that make them happy or feel grateful. The science of Positive Psychology emphasises the benefits such focusing of our attention contributes to our health and happiness. As well as inspiring community creative engagement, the resulting finalists exhibition is a celebration of the artwork displayed and a shared positive experience.
The Finalist exhibition is held at Saint Cloche Gallery in Paddington, Sydney.
Little Things Art Prize is supported through the Woollahra Council Community & Cultural Grants program.
Prize Day is an exciting and well attended event, a celebration of the 'little things’ and the prize winners. Prizes are presented by our supporter and special Guest Speaker Dr Tim Sharp from The Happiness Institute. Guests are treated to an on-site gourmet food truck and boutique ciders, enjoyed in a positive environment surrounded by creativity and expressions of gratitude.
