Jennie Thomas Travelling Art Scholarship
Starts: Wednesday, 29 May 2013 at 6:00 PM
Exhibition opening night will also launch Scholars Week and the announcement of scholarship winners for the 2013 Philip Emlyn Thomas Keyboard Scholarship, the 2013 Jennie Thomas Environment Scholarship and the Jennie Thomas 'Dreams Can Come True' Enabling Scholarships.The Jennie Thomas Travelling Art Scholarship is awarded to students who have a clear vision of their practice and a passion for what they do. It provides an opportunity for students to gain primary research and inspiration during their Honours year of study by funding Scholars to travel overseas. This award was launched in 2003 and in celebration of 10 years of generosity, the University Gallery will also be exhibiting previous winners from the decade, many of whom have gone on to become well known artists and winners of other awards, such as the 2013 PICA National Tertiary Art Prize won by our 2012 Jennie Thomas Scholar, Shan Turner-Carroll. Works by this years finalists will also be on exhibition. The 2013 winner of the Philip Emlyn Thomas Keyboard Scholarship will present their musical performance during the event. This scholarship recognises a University student studying music who shows well developed keyboard performance and a broad interest in other aspects of music. The Jennie Thomas Environment Scholarship identifies a student enrolled in Environment Studies who has a good academic record and who shows a passion towards learning about and improving the environment. The Jennie Thomas 'Dreams can come true' Scholarships are awarded to students who have excelled in Open Foundation or New Step Studies and who demonstrate a need for some extra assistance in pursuing both their university studies and their ultimate career dreams. Exhibition Dates: 29 May - 1 June. Gallery hours: Wed-Sat 12-6pm.
