JOHN STRINGER PRIZE
The John Curtin Gallery and The Collectors Club of Western Australia have announced the selection of the 2020 John Stringer Prize finalists. They are Eva Fernandez, Fiona Gavino, Peggy Madij Griffiths, Susan Roux, Curtis Taylor and Mark Tweedie.
The John Curtin Gallery congratulates WA artist Susan Roux, winner of the 2020 John Stringer Prize.
Susan’s work features alongside new work by five other contemporary artists, Eva Fernandez, Fiona Gavino, Peggy Griffiths Madij, Curtis Taylor and Mark Tweedie each nominated as competitive contenders for this year’s prestigious prize.
The works, now on display at the John Curtin Gallery, include photography, video, sculpture, textiles, drawing and painting.
The John Stringer Prize is a non-acquisitive, annual award aimed at recognising and supporting outstanding Western Australian visual art practice and is generously supported by The Collectors Club and the Kerry Stokes Collection.
This year they were selected by an independent selection panel consisting of Janis Nedela Curatorial Department, the Kerry Stokes Collection, Glenn Iseger-Pilkington, Lead Consultant, Gee Consultancy and Jane King, Manager, John Curtin Gallery.
The Prize was established in memory of John Stringer, renowned Curator of the Kerry Stokes Collection and advisor to The Collectors Club, who passed away in 2007. It honours John’s life and the legacy of his influence on and contribution to local visual arts and culture. In keeping with John’s passionate devotion to the arts, and his wish to see greater patronage of local talent, the Prize is intended to encourage and support Western Australian artists. The Prize, which was conceived and facilitated by The Collectors Club, connects locally based artists with collectors, thus contributing to the vibrancy and economic viability of the Western Australian art scene.

The Exhibition runs until Sunday 13 December 2020.
The John Curtin Gallery is open Monday to Friday 11am – 5pm
