Queensland based artists invited to submit art works
QUEENSLAND artists and artist collectives are invited to submit proposals to create a two dimensional artwork in photomedia, drawing, printmedia, collage or painting on paper, with the successful application awarded a commissioning fee of $6,000.00.
Says Tony Stephens, Artbank's Director: "This commission marks the fourth year of our partnership with QPAC, a collaboration developed to promote and support contemporary Queensland artists through commission, acquisition and public display. In the past, we have commissioned exceptional works from artists such as photomedia artist Kate Bernauer (2013), photographer Martin Smith (2014) and photographic artist and costume maker Gerwyn Davies (2015) and are excited to see what the 2016 Commission brings."
"Our ongoing relationship with Artbank has seen QPAC promote Queensland artists' work through leasing a newly commissioned work from Artbank, alongside additional pieces from their collection, for public display in QPAC's Russell St Wine Bar.
"This partnership demonstrates QPAC's commitment to support and promote artists, not just performers on stage, but within the broader artistic community. We encourage Queensland based artists to take advantage of this opportunity and get their applications in to be considered for this high profile commission," said Ms Siddle.
<span "=""> Applications for the Commission are due 8 April 2016 and the successful artist/artists will be advised on 22 April 2016, with final installation at QPAC on 15 July 2016.
