FINALIST - HAZELHURST ART ON PAPER AWARD 2019

Since 2001 The Hazelhurst Art on Paper Award has been a significant national biennial exhibition that aims to elevate the status of works on paper while supporting and promoting artists working with this medium. So thrilled to be a finalist this year with my work ‘Fright and Delight-Bundanon’, a work that was inspired when I was artist-in-residence at Bundanon Trust last year. Congratulations and best wishes to all artists who are finalists. This will be an amazing exhibition.

Exhibition launch and announcement of award recipients will be held on Friday 20th Sept 6pm at Hazelhurst Gallery.
