About

The Tidal: City of Devonport National Art Award 2016 Finalists Exhibition is the Devonport Regional Gallery’s premier exhibition, opening Friday 25 November, 6.30 pm.

The national acquisitive award with a major prize of $15,000 attracts artists at various stages in their careers from across Australia. The 22 finalists were selected by two nationally recognised art experts, Jane Devery Curator of Contemporary Art at the National Gallery of Victoria, and Jane Stewart, Principal Curator of Art at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery.

The works in the 2016 Finalists Exhibition each demonstrate excellence in conception, innovation and execution; reflecting upon the myriad perspectives and challenges inherent within the interconnections of land and sea.

The Tidal: City of Devonport National Art Award 2016 Finalists Exhibition is on from 26 November to 29 January. Visitors are encouraged to vote for their favourite work in the Peoples’ Choice Award. The winning artist will receive $1,000, courtesy of Collins Real Estate, and will be announced at the close of the exhibition in January.
