The John Fries Memorial Prize celebrates emerging art through a $10,000 non-acquisitive award donated by the Fries family in memory of former Viscopy director and honorary treasurer, John Fries.
Enter online by 6 May http://www.viscopy.org.au/art_prize_submissions/new
This year’s guest curator Sebastian Goldspink said that the prize has grown to become a significant event in Sydney’s cultural and contemporary art calendar. “The John Fries Memorial Prize showcases some of the most engaging and experimental artwork from the emerging end of the contemporary art scene,” Goldspink said, “that’s why it is so exciting to be a part of this prize – the finalists not only represent the cutting edge of contemporary art, they are producing work which challenges our perception of art forms and practice.”
The prize is open to Australian and New Zealand artists who are not enrolled as a student and whose work is not represented in the collection of an Australian state, territory or national public art gallery. The John Fries Memorial Prize is administered by Copyright Agency | Viscopy.
Goldspink said the prize aimed to provide emerging artists with a valuable career development opportunity. “The finalists in the John Fries Memorial Prize exhibition will have the opportunity to share their work with leading figures in the contemporary art sector including our judges – Dr Daniel Mudie Cunningham, Felicity Fenner, Dr Sanné Mestrom and Kath Fries. We’re lucky in 2013 to have a judging panel with diverse expertise across a number of organisations and events such as Artbank and the Venice Biennale. I’m looking forward to viewing the entries we receive and seeing which finalists will be part of the exhibition later this year.” (Sebastian Goldspink, JFMP 2013 Guest Curator)
The finalists work will be exhibited at Gaffa Galleries Sydney, 24 August – 14 September, and the winner will be announced at 7pm on 27 August.

WE ARE CALLING FOR ALL ARTISTS,
ABORIGINAL AND NON-ABORIGINAL
TO DONATE WORKS OVER THE VALUE OF $300 DOLLARS FOR SALE AT
BOOMALLI CO-OPERATIVE FOR $300.
Boomalli Aboriginal Artists Co-operative celebrated 25 years of existence in November last year.
9 of the 10 living members made it to a brilliant celebration (Vale Michael Riley).
This epic journey has only just begun as we strive to move the co-operative forward for our community and
younger artists. Our volunteer contributions to the ongoing survival of the co-operative run into hundreds of
thousands of dollars. People believe and donate their time and expertise to ensure that Aboriginal people
have a voice in their own country.
This event will occur in the week of the anniversary of the 1967 Referendum for Citizenship.
The opening will occur on Wednesday 29 May from 6 – 8pm and run through until Saturday 1 June.
The last date for dropping off the donated work will be the Sunday 26 May by 4pm.
We have an inherited debt where interest is accruing daily (we are being asked to pay someone else’s debt in the form of rates)
Our commitment to resolving issues has been highlighted by the endurance that we have displayed,
particularly in the last 3 years.
We are asking you to stand with us and secure a future for this co-operative.
For further info please contact Boomalli or email Bronwyn Bancroft at firstname.lastname@example.org

Exploring the natural world through artistic creativity

The home of the prize – the South Australian Museum – continues to inspire artists with its world-class scientific research and collections.
The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize is an acquisitive prize. The South Australian Museum retains the overall winning piece as part of the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize collection. The overall winner and winning artists in each category are awarded prize money. There are also prizes for the People’s Choice Award and the Dr Wendy Wickes Memoriam Prize, selected by visitors to the exhibition.
