Cockburn Gazette - - WHAT'S ON PLANNER -

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

Cu­ra­tor San­dra Mur­ray said nearly 60 ap­pli­cants had sub­mit­ted works, which were short­listed to 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 from this year’s finalists was tes­ta­ment to the re­mark­able prow­ess of sculp­ture in WA.

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

“The con­trast be­tween ex­pe­ri­ence and in­no­va­tion will add to the ex­cite­ment of the prize and I look for­ward to what prom­ises to be a dy­namic and cap­ti­vat­ing ex­hi­bi­tion.”

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