The Friends of the University of Newcastle not only fundraise for the University and it’s communities, they also play a pivotal role in the development and support of scholarships.
This year, the Friends of the University of Newcastle are again sponsoring the 2018 Student Art Prize. Entrants have been tasked to respond to the theme, ‘temp’, and its many connotations. Two winners will be awarded $1,000 each and their work acquired for the University’s art collection. The Student Art Prize assists in the growth of the University’s art collection, ensuring that it remains relevant to our region with contemporary work for future generations to enjoy. The judges for the 2018 exhibition are independent writer and curator, Scott Millington and Courtney Novak, Program Coordinator of the Lock Up.
The Friends of the University of Newcastle also sponsor the annual Margaret Olley Postgraduate Scholarship, named in honour of distinguished Australian artist and philanthropist Margaret Olley.
We look forward to seeing everybody for a night of art, wine, and nibbles.
Congratulations to all the exhibiting artists.
