APPLICATIONS for entries for Shepparton Art Museum’s (SAM) prestigious 2016 Australian Indigenous Ceramic Art Award (ICAA) are now open, with applicants going in the running to win the $20,000 acquisitive first prize.
The award is open to Indigenous groups and individual artists to propose an exhibition concept to realise at SAM in August 2016.
SAM Acting Director, Dr Rebecca Coates said, “The success of this important Award is in part based on the mutual exchange of ideas, stories, expertise and understanding. The other major ingredient of course is outstanding works of art. At SAM, we remain committed to supporting Indigenous artists to create ambitious and exciting new works and projects, either individually or as a group. We are excited to see what this edition of the ICAA 2016 brings forth.”
For further information on how to apply, full terms and conditions and a history of the award, please visit www.sheppartonartmuseum.com.au. All applications for the ICAA 2016 are to be sent via post and arrive no later than March 15, 2016.
