About the Website

Welcome to the Bentley Art Prize website, an initiative by the Bentley Hall Committee and the Bentley Community. The Bentley Art Prize has been held annually at the Bentley Public Hall since 1985. “The Bentley” is a vehicle for emerging artists to showcase their talent to the wider community and sponsored by many organisations including the major sponsors Richmond Dairies, Richmond Valley Council, Casino RSM Club and Dr. Aldo Castagna.  All proceeds raised from the event go toward the upkeep of the Bentley Public Hall, a focal point for the Bentley Community.


The Bentley Art Prize is a community event that attracts all ages from surrounding districts, the attraction being the diversity of artwork created locally and from afar. The family orientated event has grown over the years into a great benefit for the Bentley Community.


The Bentley Art Prize has been coordinated by Helen Trustum since 2006, prior to which it was coordinated by Reg (1922-2012) and Phyllis (1923-2009) Hartley. The website content is managed by Bentley resident Ted Hoddinott and social media content is managed by Art Prize Coordinator Helen Trustum.



Bentley resident Bec White was recently appointed as Administrative Assistant of the Bentley Art Prize.
