Tom Malone Prize

Exhibition and Shows

14 Mar 2020 to 29 Jun 2020

Glass is one of the most exciting and dynamic art-forms in this country. It is a uniquely captivating medium, capable of almost endless transformation.

Glass provides a perfect vehicle for the exploration of a range of themes, from the personal to the observational, and Australian makers are some of the world-leaders in the medium.

The Tom Malone Prize is a highly-respected national event within the Australian glass arts community and it has played an integral role in the Gallery’s acquisition of works by Australia’s most-inspiring, innovative and accomplished artists working in this art-form.

The 2020 Prize features the work of Kate Baker (New South Wales), Clare Belfrage (South Australia), Peter Bowles (Tasmania), Lisa Cahill (Australian Capital Territory), Mel Douglas (Australian Capital Territory), Ben Edols and Kathy Elliott (New South Wales), Hannah Gason (Australian Capital Territory), David Hay (Western Australia), Marc Leib (Western Australia), Jeremy Lepisto (New South Wales), Jessica Loughlin (South Australia), Nick Mount (South Australia), Kirstie Rea (New South Wales), Jason Sims (South Australia) and Jarred Wright (Queensland).

These fifteen shortlisted-works demonstrate how our nation’s glass-artists continue to invent and reinvent, to challenge themselves technically, and to find new frameworks to distill human experience in accessible and enlivening ways.
