The winner of the Flying Arts Alliance's 2018 Queensland Regional Art Awards, Erin Dunne, was celebrated last night at an event in Brisbane hosted by national law firm Holding Redlich.
Held at the Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts, the event also showcased the Wanderlust exhibition, a collection of works by artists in regional and remote areas of Queensland.
Rockhampton artist Erin Dunne won the $10,000 ‘Art For Life’ award for her work ‘Destination Duaringa’. Holding Redlich is proud to co-sponsor the annual $10,000 award.
Queensland Managing Partner Paul Venus congratulated Erin on her winning work.
“This is an impressive and eye-catching work on paper by Erin - a deserving winner. We wish Erin all the best in her future artistic endeavours,” Paul said.
“We are very proud to be able to celebrate and support artists from across rural and remote Queensland through our firm’s partnership with the Flying Arts Alliance.”
Following the exhibition at the Brisbane gallery, the artworks will travel across regional Queensland to be displayed in towns including Somerset, Winton, Goondiwindi, Chinchilla, Toowoomba, and Ingham.
Holding Redlich is also the sponsor of this travelling exhibition, pleased to be able to help promote artists from across rural Queensland, and also to provide many regional galleries with a professional curator service to install and set up the exhibitions.
National Managing Partner Ian Robertson said partnering with the Flying Arts Alliance represented a major expansion of the firm’s support for the arts nationally which also includes the Salon des Refuses exhibition at the SH Ervin Gallery in Sydney and the Masters Program exhibition at the Victorian College of the Arts.
“Supporting the arts is part of our firm’s DNA,” Ian said.
“We are delighted to be the major sponsor of this exhibition that will travel across regional Queensland and help promote so many wonderful artists.”
