The prize, which started in 2008, is open to artists 30 years old and under, across many disciplines, with past award recipients working in mixed media, print, photography, painting, video and drawing. The objective of the award is to foster the development of emerging Tasmanian artists and provide an opportunity for the public to appreciate their talents. As well as an opportunity to exhibit their works in a professional exhibition in a state-wide tour, the award offers a monetary incentive to assist the artist in their endeavors.

June 2019

The Swap across the Strait exhibition is now on display at Gallery Sunshine Everywhere (26 May – 22 June), featuring artworks by students of Sunshine College, Mother of God School and the Create and Make art classes of the Devonport Regional Gallery. The artworks are about what it’s like to live in Melbourne or Tasmania, and they also respond to questions and answers which have been sent backwards and forwards across the Strait.

All of the artworks will be travelling across the Bass Strait to Tasmania later in the year to be displayed at the Devonport Regional Gallery.

 

Below: An Echidna and a Tasmanian Devil travel to Melbourne on the Spirit of Tasmania to participate in the exhibition, and some of the artwork on display in Gallery Sunshine Everywhere.
