BALLARAT Arts Foundation grant recipient Amy Tsilemanis returns from New York with an insight into a new Melbourne exhibition.
Winner of the Ballarat Arts Foundation Rotary Club of Ballarat South Award, Ms Tsilemanis travelled to New York to spend time as project documenter of the travelling exhibition of Melbourne printmakers entitled 37degrees48’S: artists navigate Melbourne.
She produced a multimedia piece about the visual art project, which explored the cultural diversity of contemporary Australia as illustrated by life in Melbourne.
Ms Tsilemanis’ project was to produce a piece about the exhibition that was part of Print Week
“It has been so exciting to be part of this project, capturing these inspiring artists’ processes and concepts, making local and international connections and building on my skills in photography, fi lm and arts media,” she said.
37degrees48’S: artists navigate Melbourne will be showing in Melbourne in February.
Mark Bonanno, Two Friends Productions, Meg Spencer and Lachlan Wilson also received grants at this year’s award ceremony held earlier this year.
A $500 people’s choice award was also awarded to Tamara Kellet after the Ballarat Arts Foundation Alumni Exhibition on December 5.
