29 May 2021 to 19 Jul 2021 Annual Event
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 2021 Prize features the work of Kate Baker (New South Wales), Clare Belfrage (South Australia), Hannah Gason (Australian Capital Territory), Marcel Hoogstad Hay (South Australia), Rita Kellaway (South Australia), Gerry King (South Australia), Jennifer Kemarre Martiniello (Australian Capital Territory), Peter Kovacsy (Western Australia), Jeremy Lepisto (New South Wales), Madeline Prowd (South Australia), Kirstie Rea (New South Wales), Ayano Yoshizumi (South Australia) and Madisyn Zabel (Australian Capital Territory).
These thirteen shortlisted works demonstrate how the nation’s glass artists continue to invent and reinvent, to challenge themselves technically and to find new frameworks to distil human experience in accessible and enlivening ways.
The winner of the AUD15,000 acquisitive prize will be announced June 2021.
