brett whiteley travelling art scholarship

"Each year, the Brett Whiteley Studio, administered by the Art Gallery of New South Wales, invites applications for a major travelling art scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a talented young artist with an established body of work, who is best able to demonstrate the use and benefit of the scholarship to further his/her art education in Europe."

"Mrs Beryl Whiteley, Brett Whiteley’s mother, generously made funds available for the scholarship, to encourage excellence in painting and to offer young artists the same opportunity to develop their careers as were afforded to her son."

This year I have been shortlisted for this amazing scholarship of opportunity. It is such an honour to be one of 9 artists selected for the shortlist this year and to be involved in a scholarship of such standing that also bear's the name of the enigmatic and iconic Brett Whiteley.

Below are my three selected works now at the Brett Whiteley Studio awaiting their judgement.

This year's judging will be held by AGNSW director Edmund Capon, Head of Australian Art Barry Pearce and Artist Angus Nivision.

The winner is to be announced Friday 27th August.
