Three artists from the Olsen Irwin stables have been selected as finalists in the Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize for 2014. Peter Vandermark, Camie Lyons and Stephen Bird will each have a work exhibited at the Woollahra Council Chambers In Double Bay over a period of sixteen days.
Established in 2001, the prize bestows an acquisitive award of $15,000 to first place for creating an original, freestanding sculpture of up to 80cm in any dimension.
“The Woollahra Small Sculpture Prize has distinguished itself as one of the more critically significant awards for a local artist to win. Previous recipients include some of Australia’s best contemporary artists such as Mikala Dwyer, Adam Cullen, Alexander Seton and Archie Moore.” – The Art Life
The prize receives over 500 submissions each year from Australian and International artists. Of those entries, approximately 40 are chosen as finalists.
