Gallery receives record entries for art prize in anniversary year – Mirage News

Artists have been doing it tough during COVID-19, but their passion and creativity hasn’t stopped, with the Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2020 receiving a record 711 entries.

Community Portfolio Councillor Rick Baberowski said it was very heart-warming that the entries had come from far and wide, including some of Australia’s best contemporary and emerging artists.

“In the gallery’s 20th anniversary year, and the 15th year of the Sunshine Coast Art Prize, I’m really pleased for the gallery team and rapt by the number of entries we’ve received,” Cr Baberowski said.

“We are committed to supporting artists and the arts industry, which is why we made entry free this year and, together with our generous partners, we’re offering more than $40,000 in cash and prizes.

“We have a medley of really talented artists in this year’s larger field of entries, so selecting 40 finalists for the art prize exhibition will be an extra challenging, but enjoyable task, especially as the winning work will be acquired into the Sunshine Coast Art Collection.

“I hope the finalists will particularly enjoy being a part of the Sunshine Coast Art Prize in this special anniversary year.”

Finalists will be announced in August and will be showcased in an exhibition at Caloundra Regional Gallery and online from Friday, October 16 to Sunday, December 6.

High profile and experienced gallery director Tracy Cooper-Lavery will judge the Sunshine Coast Art Prize 2020. Winners will be announced at the end of the exhibition.

Broken Hill’s award-winning artist Jodi Daley completes murals honouring Milparinka’s history – ABC News

Milparinka may only have one pub, but its rich history of Indigenous life, gold mining, and cameleers is now celebrated in a mural that took outback artist Jodi Daley seven years to complete.

The artwork, now on display at the Milparinka Albert Goldfields Mining Heritage Precinct, celebrates the area’s history through to today’s pastoral era.

The former Outback Art Prize winner and Archibald finalist said it took seven years to complete the murals.

The precinct received a small grant to fund the project as part of the New South Wales Government’s $5 million Far West attraction project.

Art honours those who called Corner Country home

Daley worked closely with Milparinka Heritage and Tourism Association president Ruth Sandow to use images of real people who lived on the land as inspiration for the piece.

“But also, the beauty of that and the reasons why everyone was going out there and the history that we find when we look back.”

A smaller mural inspired by an old photo of the early settlers was featured on the outside wall of the precinct.

Ms Sandow said Daley’s work delivered the precinct’s vision of showcasing the timeline of human involvement in the landscape.

“Jodi has deep roots in this country, and I think she was the perfect choice to do the mural for us,” Ms Sandow said.

‘A perfect historic timeline’

Some of the artist’s understanding of Milparinka’s history came from her own family ties to the area.

“I’ve really connected to the place and the wider area.”

She said, while the artwork focused on the area’s Indigenous history, it reminded viewers of the often forgotten story of the Afghan cameleers’ involvement in helping build and connect regional Australia.

Broken Hill was famous for its silver, lead and zinc deposits, but the region’s rich mining history extended much further into the Far West.

The Albert Goldfields Region was a gold mining hub in the late 19th and early 20th century.

Hundreds of Chinese and European miners endured extreme food and water shortages from working and living so remotely.

New visitors discovering Far West

The main mural spanning 14 metres long and nearly 2 metres high is currently on display inside the precinct, but will eventually be installed on the outside of the building.

Ms Sandow said the image would be highly visible from the road coming into Milparinka.

“The storyline will wrap around the long and short side of the shed,” Ms Sandow said.

Ms Sandow said more people had visited the area since COVID-19 put a halt to international travel.

“There has been a lot of visitation from people who may not ever have come out this way before but are discovering it’s a wonderful, accessible part of Australia,” she said.

Daley said she was excited for the mural to have its own impact on visitors and the local community.

Basil Sellers Art Prize finalists announced – About Regional

Finalists for the biennial Basil Sellers Art Prize have been announced, with the winner to be revealed on Friday, 9 October. The works of the selected finalists will be exhibited at the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre in Moruya from Saturday, 10 October to Monday, 9 November.

The Basil Sellers Art Prize is named after Australian businessman and philanthropist Basil Sellers, who is a keen patron and art collector. Founded in 2004 for Eurobodalla artists, the competition was expanded in 2018 to include entries by artists throughout NSW and ACT, with the major prize increased to $20,000 and the winning work to be acquired by Mr Sellers.

The Basil Sellers Art Prize was funded solely by Mr Sellers until 2018, when Eurobodalla Shire Council introduced the Eurobodalla Award of $5000 for a local entry, which is acquired for council’s permanent collection.

Despite the current closure of the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre due to COVID-19, Eurobodalla Shire Council Mayor Liz Innes said she is looking forward to the event, which is a highlight on the region’s calendar.

“This has been such a tough year for our local artists, and I’m so pleased that with the generous support of philanthropist and art lover, Mr Basil Sellers, we can help enliven the creative arts industry in the southeast,” she said.

“Once again, the finalists’ works are world class and I can’t wait to see who takes out the major prize.”

Local Eurobodalla artists are eligible for council’s $5000 prize and the opportunity for a solo exhibition in the Basil Sellers Exhibition Centre in 2021, while the People’s Choice Award offers $500 prize money.

Eurobodalla Shire Council’s coordinator of creative arts development Indira Carmichael said there are double the number of competition entries in 2020 compared to previous years.

“We are able to showcase a great variety of techniques and mediums in the finalist selection,” she said.

“It was really pleasing to see so many Eurobodalla entries and see so many locals selected as finalists. We always knew our artists could perform on a wider stage and we are very excited to see the exhibition in the gallery.”

Despite the exhibition centre’s current closure, council’s art team remains committed to the program and is putting current and upcoming exhibitions online.

“In the coming weeks, our current and upcoming exhibitions will shift to an online format with the introduction of online exhibition tours and exhibiting artist profiles on our website and social media channels,” said Ms Carmichael.

“We hope to still host exhibitions in our beautiful art space, however moving online will enable the community to get their art fix at any time from the comfort of their own home, no matter what the future brings.”

The 2020 Basil Sellers Art Prize finalists are Jane Louise Aliendi, Robert Berry, Yvonne Boag, Kristone Capistrano, Tristan Chant, Lorna Crane, Nicolette Eisdell, Mirabel Fitzgerald, Steve Fox, Anna Glynn, Victoria Hempstead, Julie Mia Holmes, Janece Huntley, Yvonne Langshaw, Raewyn Lawrence, Libby Moore, Susan Nader, James Needham, Catherine O’Donnell, Veronica O’Leary, Steven Thomas, Karyn Thompson, Mark Ward, Simon Welsh, Stuart Whitelaw and Peter Yates.

Kangaroo Valley Art prize entries to open in August – Goulburn Post

Gosford Art Prize returns – Central Coast Community News

Central Coast Council’s Gosford Art Prize will be accepting online entries this year to ensure all COVID-safe processes are followed.

Since the prestigious competition began 50 years ago, this is the first time that the finalists will be selected from online submissions.

The competition prize pool is $25,000, with the winner receiving $15,000.

Council Director Connected Communities, Julie Vaughan, said that more than 500 artists from across Australia are expected to enter the competition.

“The Gosford Art Prize and the exhibition of the finalists’ work is always a highlight, and we are thrilled that we are able to proceed with the competition in what has been a challenging year, to say the least,” Vaughan said.

“We have to do things a little differently this year, and artists competing in the prize will need to submit digital images of their works online.

“Only selected finalists will be asked to deliver their physical work, and we will proceed with the Gosford Art Prize exhibition as in previous years.

“The Gosford Art Prize is a Central Coast institution and supports local artists and artists from across the country.”

Mayor Lisa Matthews said the cultural and economic benefits of the Gosford Art Prize were significant.

“Art brings us together, inspires us and challenges us, and in 2020 the Gosford Art Prize is more important than ever,” Cr Matthews said.

“Approximately 24,000 people will visit the Gosford Art Prize exhibition at the Gosford Regional Gallery, and 40 per cent of visitors will come from outside our region, which represents a great tourism boost for the Coast.”

To be accepted, applications must include a high-quality photo of the art piece.

The entry form can be found on the Central Coast Council website and should be submitted between August 1 and August 30.

Finalists will be announced on September 4, with exhibition of finalists’ work to be on show at Gosford Regional Gallery September 26-November 29.

Seven First Nations Artists You Should Get to Know Better This Year and Why – Concrete Playground

in partnership with

Australia’s longest running exhibition and art prize of its kind, the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Awards (NATSIAA) was established in the early 1980s when the commercial popularity of Aboriginal art was just starting to develop. The coveted award not only offers one of the biggest prizes for First Nations artists in the country, but it also aims to highlight the diversity and evolution of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and its various forms.

This year, there are 65 artists who have been selected as finalists for the seven awards, which have a total prize value of $80,000. So we’ve partnered with Telstra to give you a rundown on seven impressive artists that we think you should get to know better — and support — as they share their artistry with the world. Make sure you visit the NATSIAA website on Friday August 7, from 6pm, to watch the Awards presented live by host Brooke Boney.


VICTORIA’S MULTI-TALENTED ARTIST CASSIE LEATHAM

Inspired by walking the country near her two-acre property in Central Gippsland, Taungurung woman Cassie Leatham, from the Kulin Nation, is a true slashie. She’s an artist, designer, weaver, dancer and educator. Leatham is hoping her second entry in the Telstra NATSIAA — a woven artwork that tells the creation stories passed to her by her elders — connects with the Award’s judging panel. ‘Nugal-ik Liwik Bundjil (My Ancestors Creation Story)’ features a mix of pipe clay, emu fat, wattle sap, stringy bark, mud, ochre, sand crystals and wedge-tailed eagle feathers. The artist says her goal is to maintain cultural practices, with her dream being to create a teaching centre on her property to keep her culture alive.


WESTERN AUSTRALIA’S KNIFE WELDING ILLIAM NARGOODAH

Emerging artist Illiam Nargoodah is gaining acclaim for continuing an ancient tradition. Based out of Fitzroy Crossing in the Kimberley region, the 23 year old uses his skills to create knives by hand from found objects, crafting every part of the knife from handle to blade. Upholding knowledge that runs in the family, the young artist has been learning alongside his father — a leatherworker — since he was a young boy. The artist’s first Telstra NATSIAA entry consists of several special knives that were crafted out of metal objects and artefacts collected on community station properties near his home.


QUEENSLAND’S VISUAL ARTIST RYAN PRESLEY

Using the iconographic traditions of Christian art as his launchpad, Marri Ngarr man Ryan Presley has his second entry in the Telstra NATSIAA this year. It’s a political work that depicts the “beauty, resistance and everyday heroism of Aboriginal people today”, he says. ‘Crown Land (till the ends of the earth)’ mixes oil, synthetic polymer and 23 karat gold on canvas. Presley, who was born in Alice Springs and now lives in Brisbane, is known for creating works that reference the impacts of colonisation on First Nations people, and the devastation of country and wellbeing from industries such as mining.


CANBERRA-BASED SHELL ARTIST KRYSTAL HURST

Proud Worimi woman Krystal Hurst brings the strength of the women in her family, and her ancestors before her, to her art. Working with banded kelp shells, bitjagang (pipis), fishing line and seaweed, Hurst has created a layered necklace for this year’s Telstra NATSIAA. This is her second time entering the Awards, and the jewellery maker’s artwork references an enduring connection to the sea and the continuation of knowledge passed on through generations. Hurst grew up on the Mid-North Coast and she continues to tell the stories of her people through her jewellery, and via weaving workshops that she runs at the National Gallery of Australia, Canberra.


SOUTH AUSTRALIA MOTHER-DAUGHTER PAINTERS BETTY AND MARINA PUMANI

Winner of the Telstra NATSIAA 2016 Telstra General Painting of the Year, Betty Kuntiwa Pumani enters the awards again this year — but this time in collaboration with her daughter Marina Pumani. Based in Mimili, a remote community in the APY Lands of South Australia, the mother-daughter duo has made two paintings that celebrate matriarchal knowledge. Painting Antara, a special site for the women in their community, Marina adds her knowledge to this particular diptych, referencing Maku Tjukurpa (the witchetty grub songline), which is central to all of Betty’s paintings, marked by her signature use of vibrant reds.


NEW SOUTH WALES DISRUPTOR AMALA GROOM

Mixed media artist Amala Groom is the only New South Wales-based artist to make the finalist list of this year’s Awards. Based out of Bathurst, the Wiradjuri artist has re-appropriated a beaten up print of a famed painting by Frederick McCubbin — a prominent member of the Heidelberg School movement — found discarded in a parking lot during the bushfire crisis, earlier this year. Groom’s piece ‘The Fifth Element’ is a “conceptual intervention into the Australian canon of art history”, she says. It comments on the uncertainty of our current times and remind us of ngumbaay-dyil — that ‘all are one’.


ARNHEM LAND TEXTILE ARTIST DEBORAH WURRKIDJ

A previous Telstra NATSIAA finalist, Maningrida-based artist Deborah Wurrkidj has this year created a woven sculpture that reflects a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Paris taken in 2019. Alongside four other artists from the Bábbarra Women’s Centre, Wurrkidj was asked to exhibit her artwork at the Australian Embassy in Paris, which was then profiled in Vogue. This new work, woven from memory, is inspired by the Eiffel Tower. Wurrkidj says, “I saw that tower and I thought I’ll go back to Maningrida and I’ll make her. Yes, I can weave that tower in our way, our Aboriginal way, not balanda [a white/European] way. And I did it.”

Collection Highlight

Suzanne ARCHER

Feeling the boy 1987

mixed media on paper

67 x 101cm

Winner of the 1987 Jacaranda Art Prize

Jacaranda Art Society Collection

Feeling the boy is the winner of the Jacaranda Art Prize held in 1987. Well-known Australian artist Guy Warren, as judge of the 1987 Jacaranda Art Prize, awarded this expressive work which explores the artist’s experience of her pregnancy. Like her work of this time, Feeling the boy was centred around her personal experiences and was created in series or bodies of works. Linear markings created in graphite, ink, pen and wash, oil pastel and pencil construct images triggered by sound, sensation and smell. The images or marks are part of the artist’s personal visual language and can be seen throughout this series of works that developed from the artist’s initial exploration of her childhood in the early 1980s.

The drawing Feeling the boy towards painting, it is a fusion of medium. This is indicative of the late 1980s when the boundaries between areas of artistic practice were becoming more indistinct. Feeling the boy was part of the Jacaranda Art Society Collection, one of the founding collections of the Grafton Regional Gallery, which was gifted in 1988 with the establishment of the gallery by the Jacaranda Art Society.

Suzanne Archer was born in Surrey, UK and studied at the Sutton School of Art (1964). She arrived in Australia in 1965 and is based in the Wedderburn region of New South Wales. Archer has exhibited regularly since the late 1960s and is a recipient of the Wynne Prize (1994), the Dobell Prize (2010), the Kedumba Drawing Prize (2010) and the Eutick Memorial Still Life Award (2018). She has undertaken residencies at Greene Street Studio, New York; Power Studio at Cite Internationale, Paris and Redgate Residency, Beijing. Career surveys have been held at the Macquarie University Art Museum, Sydney (2016) and Campbelltown Arts Centre, Campbelltown (2019). Archer’s work is held in the collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the National Gallery of Victoria, the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Artbank as well as significant regional and tertiary institutions.

Artefacts

The Gallery currently has two fabulous exhibitions on display Woven Dreams by Kylie Caldwell and Crossing The Clarence.

Google Street Art Project

The Google Street Art Project provides a platform via Google where you can view some of the world’s most amazing street art. Street art occupies a bit of a no man’s land between the public realm and the gallery, transforming the urban space into something of an ephemeral outdoor art museum. Street art can offer a window into the culture, history, activism and movements of a society.

Google Street Art Project has attempted to capture street art in destinations like Buenos Aires and Berlin, as well as showcasing street art collections like that of Widewalls, and documenting street art festivals such as The Millerntor Gallery in Hamburg. Some of the walls, cities and projects that appear on the Street Art Project even come with audio guides that tell you the stories behind the walls.

The winner of the prestigious John Leslie Art Prize is announced – Gippsland Times

Winner of the 2020 John Leslie Art Prize, Sarah Tomasettis Kailash from the Air (2019, oil and incision on fresco plaster, 220 by 130cm). Image courtesy of the artist and Australian Galleries, Melbourne and Sydney, and Beaver Galleries, Canberra.

MELBOURNE-based artist Sarah Tomasetti has been announced as the winner of the 2020 John Leslie Art Prize at Gippsland Art Gallery, Sale.

The announcement was made by Wellington Shire mayor Alan Hall in the gallery’s first virtual opening posted online on Friday.

Tomasetti’s enigmatic painting Kailash from the Air depicts the sacred Tibetan mountain Kailash from a high perspective, painted using the Renaissance method of oil and incision on fresco plaster.

The work explores the artist’s concern for the Earth’s changing natural environment.

“The Tibetan plateau is melting, in some places up to 10 times faster than the poles,” she said.

“All the river systems of south Asia originate here, pouring over the edge of the roof of the world and sustaining one third of the world’s population.

“And so research into the climate dynamics of region increasingly aligns with the centuries-old belief amongst Buddhists and Hindus that Mt Kailash is the navel of the world and the source of all life.

“Mt Kailash has never been climbed, but from a drone or a plane we can see this sacred peak from above, and so this work hovers at the dawn of the Anthropocene, an age in which a human gaze can penetrate all corners of the globe, a colonising force without compare.”

A large painting at 240 by 150 centimetres, the work is meticulously executed and atmospheric, and uses a limited colour palette.

Tomasetti’s winning painting was selected by two judges, gallery director Simon Gregg and gallery curator Erin Mathews, from a field of 50 finalists.

These finalists were chosen by a guest judge, The Age art critic Robert Nelson, as well as senior gallery staff.

In all, 409 entries were submitted for the 2020 John Leslie Art Prize, from 334 artists.

Mr Gregg described Tomasetti’s winning work as “magical”.

“The painting is a dazzling tour-deforce that draws you in,” he said.

“The handling and application of the oil paint into wet fresco is exemplary, and the subject is a timely one with the changing climate and the need for increasing respect of our planet’s finite resources.

“The more one looks at the painting the more we find within it, and it continues to unfold before our eyes.”

Tomasetti has held countless solo and group exhibitions since her first exhibition in 1988.

Winner of the Best Gippsland Work category, Linda Gibbs, untitled (2019, oil on linen, 112 by 168cm). Image courtesy of the artist.

In 1999, Tomasetti completed a Master of Arts in Fine Art at RMIT University, and is currently a PhD researcher and fine art lecturer there.

She has been a finalist in 14 prizes (including the John Leslie Art Prize on two separate occasions), but this is her first win.

Tomasetti takes home the $20,000 first prize, and her painting will be automatically acquired for the gallery’s permanent collection.

Fish Creek-based artist Linda Gibbs was awarded Best Gippsland Work, for her untitled painting.

The large oil on linen work impressed the judges, who praised it for its gentle luminosity, sparse but expert handling of paint, and the strangely inviting subject.

Gibbs was awarded $1000 in her category.

Both winning artists said they were thrilled to be selected from the strong field of finalists.

The John Leslie Art Prize is one of Australia’s most prestigious prizes for landscape painting.

The prize is named after the late John Leslie OBE (1919-2016), a former patron of the Gippsland Art Gallery and a well known local philanthropist.

The continuation of the prize is a result of the generosity of the John Leslie Foundation.

The prize is offered biennially, and previous winners include David Keeling (2000), Vera Mller (2002), Mark McCarthy (2004), Brigid Cole-Adams (2006), Andrew Mezei (2008), Jason Cordero (2010), Tony Lloyd (2012), Shannon Smiley (2014), Amelda Read-Forsythe (2016), and Vanessa Kelly (2018).

The exhibition of the work of the 50 finalists is currently on display at the Gippsland Art Gallery, and will continue until October 25.

Visitors are invited to submit their favourite to the People’s Choice Award online on the gallery’s website.
