A judging panel will choose a number of pieces to include in the exhibition from September 6 to October 6 at Merrythought Teddy Bear Factory.

"It is estimated more than 3000 people will visit the world famous heitage site over the weekend of the world heritage festival, giving local artists the perfect opportunity to show off their own interpretations of the Gorge."
