Congratulations to Liam Barr and Roy Good who have been selected as finalists for the 24th Annual Wallace Art Awards 2015.
The Annual Wallace Art Awards aim to support, promote and expose New Zealand contemporary art and artists. Sir James Wallace established the Annual Wallace Art Awards 24 years ago. These Awards are now the longest surviving and largest annual art awards of their kind in New Zealand, with a value amounting to over $195,000. They differ from other important New Zealand art prizes in that they aim to provide challenging opportunities and broadening experiences to the four major winners by way of residencies at top-class international institutions. Many of the winners and finalists of the Awards are purchased by the Trust each year to add to the Collection.
The Awards are given for contemporary New Zealand painting, sculpture, video, drawing and unique photography and print to encourage and develop the visual arts in New Zealand, and in particular to reward artists creating outstanding work.
The Judges for 2015 are Joyce Campbell, Andrew Clifford, Ian Jervis, Andrew McLeod and Philip Trusttum. Judges for the Fulbright-Wallace Arts Trust Award are Bronwynne Cornish, Mark Fitz-Gerald, Richard Maloy and Steve Rood.
