Congratulations to Michelle Cawthorn for being selected as a finalist for the 2018 inaugural Splash McClelland Contemporary Watercolour Award at McClelland Sculpture Park and Gallery in Victoria.
Held every three years, the inaugural $30,000 Splash: McClelland Contemporary Watercolour Award has been established to showcase Australian artists who work in the medium of watercolour. It is an acquisitive award enabled by the Fornari Bequest, by the Will of the late Lena May Fornari, and is a legacy of her support of the arts in Victoria. Lena May was an ardent collector of watercolours and the first acquisitions through this Bequest were significant watercolour paintings. Continuing this tradition, Splash presents the work of contemporary Australian artists who use this medium in highly accomplished and innovative ways:
pen, watercolour, graphite, white gouache, liquid graphite, indian ink, acrylic on paper
79 x 79cm
1 December 2018 to 17 March 2019
