Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship 2014
The annual Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship is open to Australian painters aged between 20 and 30 years.
It started in 1999 from an endowment by Mrs Beryl Whiteley, who died in 2010. The inspiration was the profound effect international travel and study had on her son, the artist Brett Whiteley, as a result of winning the Italian Government Travelling Art Scholarship at the age of 20.
Today, the scholarship winner receives $25,000 and a three-month residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, which is administered by the Art Gallery of NSW.
A small section of works from this year’s scholarship winner and finalists will be on display at the Brett Whiteley Studio, Surry Hills.
