The 40 Under 40 Exhibition & Art Prize is back for 2024!

The Cooroy Butter Factory Arts Centre is kicking off the year with the highly anticipated 40 Under 40 Exhibition & Art Prize. Opening its doors on January 12th, the exhibition will showcase 40 of the Sunshine Coast’s most exciting artists under the age of 40. Thanks to our sponsors, LANTANA Space, artisan and the Australian Decorative & Fine Arts Society, we are offering some great art prizes to the top 2D and 3D artists, as well as a People’s Choice award, voted by our visitors.


This exhibition has garnered a reputation for building a community of young artists and introducing them to the Sunshine Coast and beyond. The diversity of work in the show welcomes all art enthusiasts; from first-time gallery visitors to those looking to expand, or start, their art collection. 


As if the exhibition wasn’t exciting enough, the 40 Under 40 Opening Event will be rocking the gallery walls on January 19th. Bringing the same energy as previous years, this event will draw a crowd into the heart of Cooroy; three local bands, local food vendors and beverages provided by Your Mates Brewing Co will keep the audience entertained as we celebrate the official opening of the exhibition. 


Get your hands on a ticket for an amazing evening. For those of you who may miss out, the exhibition will be open to the public from January 12th - February 18th, 2024, so there’s plenty of time to check it out. 

This exhibition is proudly supported by Noosa Council and Arts Queensland. The Regional Arts Development Fund is a partnership between the Queensland Government and Noosa Council to support local arts and culture in regional Queensland.
