Applications close Friday 8 July 2016
Each year, the Brett Whiteley Studio, administered by the Art Gallery of NSW, invites applications for a major travelling art scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to a talented young artist/painter with an established body of work who is best able to demonstrate the use and benefit of the scholarship to further their art education in Europe.
Mrs Beryl Whiteley (1917–2010) generously allocated funds for the scholarship in memory of her son, Brett Whiteley, both to encourage excellence in painting and to offer young artists the same opportunity to develop their careers as were afforded to her son.
The scholarship consists of an amount of $30,000 and a three-month residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris, administered by the Art Gallery of NSW.
The residency is for a continuous period of three months occupancy, from July to September 2017. The scholarship must be taken at this specified time.
The $30,000 must be used by the successful applicant to further their art education in Europe for a period of at least six months, three of which must be used in conjunction with the residency.
