Congratulations to three Emerging Artists who join the Sculpture by the Sea ‘Family of Sculptors’ as they are awarded a place on the Clitheroe Foundation Emerging Artists Mentor Program
Over the past 21 years a ‘family of sculptors’ has been created by Sculpture by the Sea that has had a major impact on the development of sculpture in Australia. Prominent international and Australian sculptors have provided a legacy of accessible and high order sculpture to a generation of young, emerging sculptors.
Sculpture by the Sea has been active in formalising the relationships between established and emerging sculptors through the development and facilitation of a number of programs. One such long-running program, established in 2006, and now in its 12th year, is made possible by the generous support of The Clitheroe Foundation and the Emerging Sculptor Mentor Program. Established with the aim to encourage professional and meaningful fellowships between emerging sculptors and established practitioners, the emerging sculptor receives professional and technical support to ensure development of practice. We are pleased to congratulate the Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi 2017 recipients, who will each receive $10,000 to support their careers, and who now join the sculpture family: collaborators Tango Conway and Amelia Skelton (NSW); Sophie Lanigan and Isobel Lord (NSW); and April Pine (WA).
