SALLY ANDERSON: WINS BRETT WHITELEY TRAVELLING ARTS SCHOLARSHIP 2017
Congratulations to Sally Anderson for being awarded the Brett Whiteley Travelling Arts Scholarship 2017.
The prize is $40,000 and a three month residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris which is administered by the Art Gallery of New South Wales to further her art's education.
Begun in 1999, this scholarship for young Australian painters is now in its 19th year. The annual Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship is open to Australian artists aged between 20 and 30 years. It was created from an endowment by Mrs Beryl Whiteley, who died in 2010. The inspiration was the profound effect international travel and study had on her son, the artist Brett Whiteley, as a result of winning the Italian Government Travelling Art Scholarship at the age of 20.
The exhibition will open 13 October – 19 November 2017 at Brett Whiteley Studio, 2 Raper Street, Surry Hills NSW 2010.
