John Fries Memorial Prize

June 8, 2011

Fingers crossed as I’ve just entered the Casuarina and Cabbage Palm giclée prints from my recent solo exhibition, Collected Patterns: The botany of Walter Hill, into the John Fries Memorial Prize!

Run by Viscopy, this annual award of $10,000 is open to artists of all ages and disciplines resident in Australia and New Zealand who are not enrolled as a student and whose work is not represented in the collection of  a regional, state, territory or national public art gallery. The winner will be announced at the finalists’ exhibition in August 2011.

The prize has been donated by the Fries family in memory of former Viscopy director and honorary treasurer, John Fries, who made a remarkable contribution to the life and success of Viscopy.
