Horowhenua artists are being invited to enter work for the 2013 Mahara Arts Review.

The exhibition, to open at the Waikanae gallery in May, showcases the talents of Kapiti and Horowhenua artists with prizes across different categories.

Selectors are yet to be announced.

Entries are not restricted to any theme or media, but entrants must live or work in the Horowhenua-Kapiti region.

"We've had work from primary students through to the elderly," said gallery director Janet Bayly. Last year's review attracted 100 entries, of which 50 made it into the exhibition.

Waikanae's Chrissie Sallis scooped the top award for an acrylic work called Dreamships, winning $1000. Margaret Wickens won the People's Choice award for her watercolour painting Reflections.

Works for this year's review must be submitted to Mahara Gallery between April 20 and 28.

The sixth annual Mahara Arts Review will run from May 12 to June 30 at Mahara Gallery, Mahara Pl, Waikanae.
