GOLD COAST ART PRIZE FINALIST

This work has been selected as one of the finalists for this year’s Gold Coast Art Prize. There is a great list of artists involved – you can check out the details here - http://www.theartscentregc.com.au/whats-on/whats-on-items/gold-coast-art-prize-2015 This prize has a particular nuance in that, whilst an overall winner is announced, the prize is not attached to a lump of money, as is most commonly the case. The Prize spreads the love around by way of denoting a pool of $30k which has been put aside to purchase works from the final list of artists.
