Artists were invited to submit a painting or composition that depicts life in and around the game and sport of cricket, in settings of backyards, parks, beaches, streets, village greens or social cricket. The work could be figurative, semi-abstract, still-life or figure-in-landscape.
Hutchings's painting, titled "Team Mates" is one of 40 finalists, including five from England, South Africa and New Zealand, from over 200 entries received.
The winning artists will be announced at a Gala Cocktail Evening in the SCG's Members Pavilion on 4 October.
