I'm pleased to announce that I've been selected as a finalist in this year's Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2014 along with 39 artists from around the country. (View the finalists here) My selected artwork is Adaptation #1: Little Corella, digital photography on Aluminium.
The prize will be judged by the Director of Queensland Art Gallery, Chris Saines, and the winner will be announced at the Opening Event.
The finalist exhibition will be held at the Caloundra Regional Gallery from 27 August to 26 October, 2014 and the opening event will be held on Wednesday, 27 August from 6pm.
This is the Bay of Fires area that I visited during my residency at Cataract Gorge in Feb/March this year. (Not the shortlisted artwork)
I received an exciting email today advising me that I've been shortlisted as a finalist for the Bay of Fires Art Prize in Tasmania. This is a $20,000 acquisitive prize and my work will be exhibited alongside the other 29 finalists at Gallery Parnella at St Helens, Tasmania, in June, 2013. I am one of six mainlanders selected and the only Queensland artist to be shortlisted for this prize!
Thank you Tassie
