Thank you for your submission to the 2008 Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship. On behalf of Arts NSW I regret to inform you that on this occasion your work has not been selected for the Finalists Exhibition.
As you would no doubt be aware, the growing profile of the scholarship and this year's increase in prize money have led to a greater volume and quality of submissions. Needless to say, the selection panel found the task of narrowing down the list of artists for the Finalists Exhibition to be very difficult.
If you included a stamped, self-addressed envelope in your application, your support material will be returned to you in the next couple of weeks. Otherwise, could you please make arrangements to collect your material from Artspace during business hours (Monday – Friday, 10am – 6pm/ Saturday– Sunday 11am – 5pm). Unfortunately Artspace cannot be responsible for any support material that remains uncollected by 10 October 2008.
We invite you to attend the opening of the 2008 Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship Finalists Exhibition at Artspace on Thursday 16 October, and we wish you the best with your practice.
