2015 Emerging Artist Award

This year I was fortunate to again support the City of South Perth’s Emerging Artist competition.This year there were 91 artworks on show of a very high standard. It is great to see the competition evolve into a recognised exhibition for local emerging artists.

Congratulations to Lydia Tretheway for winning the $500 John McGrath MLA Young Artist Award. Her artwork ‘Passing the Invisable’ was of a very high quality.

The Exhibition will remain open to the public until Saturday 31 October. Members of the public can purchase a piece of their own, as well as vote on their favourite piece to be awarded the Soco Realty People’s Choice Award post exhibition.
