Sally Anderson and Alan Jones‘ work is currently on display at S.H. Ervin Gallery as part of the The Whiteley at 20: Twenty Years of the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship.
The Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship was established by Ms Beryl Whiteley who generously allocated funds for the scholarship in memory of her son, Brett Whiteley, to provide young painters the opportunity to travel to Paris and explore Europe in order to develop their artistic practice. Since its inception in 1999, 20 young painters have followed in the footsteps if Brett Whiteley who won the Italian Government Travelling Scholarship in 1959. The exhibition features works of the 20 scholarship winning artists, many of whom are well-known, alongside those of Brett Whiteley. Presented with the support of the Art Gallery of New South Wales through the Beryl Whiteley Bequest.

“Administered by Federation University Australia, in partnership with the Art Gallery of Ballarat the Guirguis New Art Prize (GNAP) is generously sponsored by local surgeon and philanthropist, Mr Mark Guirguis.
In its fourth iteration, GNAP19 promises to inspire and surprise audiences with a bold mix and unique snapshot of Australian art created by artists selected from the Northern Territory, Queensland, Australian Capital Territory, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania.
Reflecting a myriad of historical and contemporary influences, artists explore ideas ranging from Australian cultural and social history, self-portraiture, identity and transformation, to a humorous perspective on skullduggery and office culture and theories surrounding the fourth dimension, expressed through diverse media including sculpture, video, painting, textiles, ceramics and installation.
GNAP19 is presented at FedUni’s Post Office Gallery and the Art Gallery of Ballarat.”
