Artworks by Emma-Kate Moore of Kingston and four Dunedin artists are among the finalists in a national drawing competition with a $20,000 first prize.
Ms Moore, Robert West, James Robinson, Jonathan Cuming, and James Thomson-Bache are among the 84 entries selected from more than 500 for the final exhibition of the 2017 Parkin Drawing Prize.
All the shortlisted artists will have their works showcased in a month-long exhibition to be held at the New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts in Wellington, from August 2 to September 3.
The first-prize winner will be announced on August 1. Ten other artists will receive "highly commended prizes", each of $500.
Competition communications manager Rebecca Reed said an unusual feature of the fifth annual Parkin event was that eight artists, including Ms Moore, had had two works selected for the final exhibition. It had previously been a rare occurrence for an artist to have two works selected in the competition, which was established by philanthropist and arts patron Chris Parkin five years ago, Ms Reed said.
