Tauranga Art Gallery, in partnership with Seeds Trust, is delighted to announce a new biennial painting award called the Rydal Art Prize.
The winner of the art award will be announced in early 2019 with the recipient receiving a $20,000 prize and an exhibition at Tauranga Art Gallery.
The winner will be selected by a jury of four nationally recognised art professionals, who will remain anonymous until the winner is announced. The prize will be for work exhibited nationally or international during the 24 months prior to January 2019.
Tauranga Art Gallery director, Karl Chitham is excited to be establishing a non-competitive award with the support of Seeds Trust. “We are privileged to have been chosen by Seeds Trust to be the home of this award and we anticipate some really dynamic deliberations from our panel of talented judges on the way to selecting our inaugural prize recipient.”
