The 2018 Toowoomba Biennial Emerging Artist Award & Exhibition is an acquisitive biennial 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 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. This exhibition brings together and celebrates 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 2019 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.
Join us for the official Opening & Awards Ceremony on Sunday 9 September 2018 @ 1.30pm.
This is a free event and all are welcome. RSVP to the Gallery by Wednesday 5 September 2018.
