Local artist, Lizzie Horne, has recently returned from her creative expedition to Florence, Italy where she participated in studio-based tuition in aluminium etching and waterless lithography at the Fondazione Il Bisonte studio. Lizzie received a $1,500 grant towards the costs of extending her printmaking skills from the Helen Dangar Memorial Bursary.
The Bursary was established in 2017 in the memory of well-known Armidale arts supporter Helen Dangar (1944-2015) with the aim of supporting the New England region’s artists to advance in their career paths, helping the successful applicant to attend a creative or professional development activity that will make a real difference to their arts practice.
Lizzie will discuss her trip in Florence, the new printmaking techniques she learnt and the artwork she made (as well as tales of food, wine and art in Italy). She will also discuss the Helen Dangar Memorial Bursary and how it contributed to making her trip possible.
Join us at NERAM to hear of Lizzie’s Florence adventure. If you are an artist based in the New England Region this is your opportunity to ask questions about the Helen Dangar Memorial Bursary and how you can apply this year to engage in your own creative development opportunity. We will be launching this years Bursary at the talk and will be discussing the application process.
This is a free event, please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org
NERAM would like to thank Bill Dangar, the Dangar Family, Friends of NERAM, Packsaddle and the many donors and supporters who donated almost $70,000 through the NERAM Foundation towards establishing this annual bursary.
The New England Regional Art Museum will be next calling for applications for the bursary from artists across the entire New England region in July 2018.
