A celebration of the best work from the country’s top four tertiary art schools will soon be held at the Gus Fisher Gallery.

The Eden Arts Art Schools Award is an annual event now in its fifth year. The work of five students from each of Elam School of Fine Arts, Unitec, Whitecliffe and AUT will be on show at the Gallery from Tuesday 21 July – Saturday 1 August, following an invite-only award evening on Monday 20 July.

This year’s Elam representatives are Tuan (Shiraz) Sadikeen (second year), Selena Yuan (third year), Haedum (Sunny) Noh (fourth year) and honours student Nicholas Pound.

Sponsored by the Eden Arts Trust, the Art Schools Award is open to all full time undergraduate art students, and offers a total prize pool of $8000. This year’s judging panel includes artists Mary-Louise Brown and Denys Watkins, along with gallerist Melanie Roger.

The Trust was formed nearly 30 years ago to promote arts in the Mt Eden area, and now supports a full calendar of events to support this.

(Gus Fisher Gallery is open 10am – 5pm Tuesday – Friday, 12pm-4pm Saturday – closed Sunday and Monday)
