From the outset, the exhibition and award were intended to provide significant benefits to artists and as the Hindmarsh Prize is peer assessed by gallery curators and a director, it confirms that the works selected are both worthy and interesting. Along with the $10,000 prize money the winning artist will receive a four week residency at Canberra Glassworks.

The shortlisting panel, consisting of Nick Mitzevich, Director, NGA, Eva Czernis-Ryl , Curator, Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences and Aimee Frodsham, Artistic Director, Canberra Glassworks, were impressed by the breadth of talent displayed in the record number of entries to this year’s Prize.

The winner will be announced at the exhibition opening of shortlisted works on Friday, September 21 at 6:00 pm in the Fitters Workshop, adjacent to Canberra Glassworks. The exhibition will run until Sunday, September 30, and will be open daily to the public from 10 am to 4 pm.

Following the exhibition here, the works will travel to the Toyama Glass Studio in Japan, where they will be on display from October 26 to November 11.
