Zoe Young wins Portia Geach Memorial Award 2018

Congratulations to Zoe Young who has won the $30,000 Portia Geach Memorial Award for 2018.

The judging panel included: Samantha Meers, Art Gallery of New South Wales trustee; Natalie Wilson, curator of Australian and Pacific art at AGNSW; and director of S.H Ervin Gallery Jane Watters.

“The Portia Geach is vital for female artists across the country and has provided a much-needed platform to display the work of young, emerging artists alongside that of established painters whose work I greatly admire. The award gives me the support to progress my artistic practice and I look forward to creating my next body of work.” – Zoe Young

Works by all 50 finalists are on view at the S.H. Ervin Gallery until 2 December.
