11:00am to 5:00pm Thursday 30 March 2017 (Daily event)

On view at NAS Gallery is the 2017 Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize where guest curator Callum Morton has selected some of the country’s brightest contemporary art stars who will in turn nominate one emerging contemporary artist to participate in the exhibition. This pairing of established and emerging artists seeks to encourage mentoring relationships between different generations of artists.
All participating artists submit a single recent work to contend for one of two prizes. The main award for established artists is the Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize, valued at AUD25,000 and sponsored by Konica Minolta for the fifth consecutive year. The Emerging Artist Prize is valued at AUD10,000 and is sponsored by the Glenburn Pastoral Company (Brett Whitford).
The Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize was established in 1996 by Redlands School and has been presented at the National Art School Gallery since 2012. Participating artists have no limitations on their choice of media or subject matter, however the Prize’s model requires each selected artist to nominate one emerging contemporary artist to participate in the exhibition. This pairing of established and emerging artists seeks to encourage mentoring relationships between different generations of artists.
