Riversdale Arts Emerging Artist Award finalists announced

Riversdale Arts Emerging Artist Award 2018

Ten finalists for this award have been picked by judges Jim and Marcella Geddes of Eastern Southland Gallery from the 22 entries received.

The standard of entries received was of very high quality and the decision has been very difficult. The artwork is now sent on to the gallery for a second round of judging.

The 10 finalists' work will be displayed at the Exhibition (running from 21st-29th of July) and the winner of the award with a prize of $1000 will be announced at the Gala Opening of the exhibition on Friday, July 20 at the Riversdale Community Centre.

Entry in the award is open to artists under 25 (at 20 July 2018) who are residents of Southland - the Southland area for this purpose is defined as the area used by the Community Trust of Southland.
