Sculpture set to surprise
In a Sunshine Coast first, the Noosa Regional Gallery is preparing for an exhibition of some of Australia's most talented three-dimensional artists. Forty finalists have now been selected for the Noosa Regional Gallery Travelling Scholarship and the winner is set to be announced at a gala event on 6 August. One fortunate finalist will win the open section's $12,000 cash prize and a solo exhibition at the Noosa Regional Gallery.
The purpose of the scholarship is to enable the winner to undertake study or training interstate or overseas. This may be through a recognised art institution, participation in short-term workshops or study with a nominated artist.
The successful forty applicants are Ross Annels, Wanda Bennett, Melissa Cameron, Michael Ciavarella, Courtney Coombs, Laurindo De Abreu Soto, Rowley Drysdale, Robert Delves, Caren Elliss, Chantelle Fisher & Eleisha Nylund, Hew Chee Fong, Russell Fuller, Shannon Garson, Robyn Gill, Mandy Gunn, Lyndal Hargrave, Cath Johnston, Locust Jones, Alicia Kane, Erin Keys, Sherrie Knipe, Peta Kruger, Alice Lang, Tina Lee, Ange Leech, Wendy McGrath, Dobin Moon, Caroline Phillips, Josephine Prestipino, Ann Russell, Carly Scoufos, Tracy Smith, Petra Svoboda, Suzannah Terauds, Terence Thallon, Christina Waterson, Amanda Watson-Will, Di West, Shona Wilson and Caitlin Yardley.
This diverse group of Australian artists, designers and craftspeople will captivate art lovers with such an exciting mix of media transforming the Gallery with installations, light and video projections and beautiful stand alone pieces. The exhibition will create a visual spectacular with works made from ceramic, paper, plastics, found items, glass, timber, felt, stone, metal, silver, recycled pianola scrolls, twigs, typewriter and bees wax.
In addition to the main prize, student prizes will also be awarded to both Tertiary and Secondary Sunshine Coast students. Yeats Gruin and Glenda Stasse are in the running for the Tertiary prize where the winner will receive a $2000 scholarship towards study overseas or in Australia, plus an exhibition in the Foyer Space of the Noosa Regional Gallery. Chloe Killip and Sophia Goldschmidt are secondary students in the running to receive $1000 towards study programs or study materials.
There will also be a People's Choice Award where members of the public can vote for their favourite artist. The winner of this award will be announced 20 August.
