Congratulations to our artists Rosalind Atkins, Jazmina Cininas, David Frazer & Glenda Orr, who have been selected as finalists in the 2019 Banyule Award for Works on paper.

The Banyule Award for Works on Paper is an acquisitive prize awarded biennially to an outstanding contemporary work on paper. The award is open to all Australian artists, with the winning work receiving $10,000 as the main acquisition prize.

Artists are invited to respond to a theme, and can submit work in any medium, as long as it is made on, or with paper. This year’s theme is centred around the notion of ‘Threshold’ calling on artists to submit artworks that express, explore, advocate or address current social, cultural, political or environmental issues.

The world stands at the threshold of change – for better or worse, it’s up to us.

This exhibition will open on Wednesday 28 August at 6pm with an official reception and an award ceremony to recognise the award winner and artists behind the incredible pieces of art. All are welcome to enjoy the official opening evening and exhibition.

Where: Hatch Contemporary Art Space, 14 Ivanhoe Parade, Ivanhoe 3079

When: 28 August – 3 September 2019
