The Toowoomba Biennial Emerging Artist Award Exhibition is an acquisitive art award and exhibition that showcases the work of emerging artists from south east Queensland who are engaged in a contemporary art practice.

The South-East Queensland area [from the New South Wales border to Bundaberg and west to Roma] is home to a diverse group of artists who are exploring new modes of practice, examining historical and cultural material, interrogating existing paradigms and viewing the world from a variety of perspectives.

The biennial exhibition seeks to bring together and celebrate artists in the region who have developed a clear area of interest in their art practice and body of work.

Since the year 2000 the Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery has facilitated this designated project to support the creative talents of the next generation of artists.

Artists’ works selected for the exhibition are eligible for acquisition and awarded works from the exhibition will be included in the 2021 Crates on Wheels tour. Crates on Wheels is a Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery biennial touring initiative, connecting emerging artists from south east Queensland with students in the Toowoomba region through educational outcomes.

Toowoomba Regional Council proudly sponsors up to $15,000 for acquisitions.

Exhibition on display: Saturday 12 September - Sunday 25 October 2020
