Art will take on various captivating forms at this year’s Katanning Agricultural Show, as a multitude of productions across numerous categories are submitted for exhibition. This year’s show has a range of competitions and exhibits that emphasise inclusivity and encourage the participation of everyone. With exhibitions in cooking, crafting, sculpting, painting, photography, floral arrangements, knitting plus more, there is sure to be something for everyone. Katanning Agricultural Show vice president Rosalie Baxter said all entries were free of charge, with a focus on unearthing young talents across all art forms. “Our big push this year is free gate entry and free art competitions,” Ms Baxter said. “We encourage nought to five-year-olds to participate in any of the exhibitions, which has grown significantly over the years. “We hope by introducing kids at an early age, by the time they go through primary school and high school, and hopefully as adults, they’ll continue to participate in entries in the show.” There will be a host of competitions with trophies and cash prizes up for grabs, including a Lego-building contest. “We have so many cash prizes and trophies to be won, which have been supplied by a range of different sponsors,” Ms Baxter said. “This year we have an adult Lego-building competition, which is an exciting prospect.” There will also be a vintage car rally and antique motors on display for all engine enthusiasts to admire. Budding home chefs are encouraged to put their signature recipes to the test, whipping up sweet morsels and baked goods. All cooking exhibits must be in place by 9am on Friday, October 27, at which time judging will begin.
