I'm pleased to announce that my painting, "Ready to Serve" has been selected as a finalist for the 2018 Lethbridge $10000 Small Scale Art Prize. It is one of about 130 paintings that will be in the running for the $10000 price. All finalists works will be displayed at Lethbridge Gallery in Queensland from 12 - 22 July with the winner announced on Saturday 14 July. Finalists can also be viewed online.
"Ready to Serve" is an oil painting done on printed canvas fabric that was sourced from Spoonflower. The silver plate is paper collaged onto the painting to give it a different texture to the rest of the painting. The painting is part of a series called "I am" that looks at the stereotypical 'perfect' woman. The entire "I am" series will be exhibited at Tacit Gallery in Melbourne from 24 October to - 18 November.
The Lethbridge art prize has been running for nine years. This is the fourth time my work has been selected for the shortlisted exhibition.
