Western Suburbs Weekly - - Arts -

SIX­TEEN fi­nal­ists have been an­nounced for this year’s Bankwest Art Prize, show­cas­ing the tal­ents of WA sculp­tors.

Cu­ra­tor San­dra Mur­ray said nearly 60 ap­pli­cants had sub­mit­ted works, which were short­listed to the 16 fi­nal­ists: Ab­dul-Rah­man Ab­dul­lah, Claire Bai­ley, Paul Ca­porn, Mikaela Cas­tle­dine, Peter Dai­ley, Kevin Draper, Su­san Flavell, Tar­ryn Gill, Paul Kaptein, Theo Kon­ing, Lou Lam­bert, An­gela McHar­rie, Ge­off Over­heu, Mark Parfitt, Alis­tair Rowe and An­drew Sun­ley Smith.

Mur­ray said the high stan­dard was tes­ta­ment to the re­mark­able prow­ess of sculp­ture in WA.

“I am thrilled with the se­lec­tion of fi­nal­ists for this year, rang­ing from wellestab­lished artists to mid-ca­reer and emerg­ing sculp­tors,” she said.

The Bankwest Art Gallery at 300 Mur­ray Street, Perth will host an ex­hi­bi­tion of all fi­nal­ist art­works from Novem­ber 22.
