For 20 years Tasmania’s only women’s art prize has been shining the spotlight on the creativity, passion, and vision of this island’s women artists. To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Prize, RANT Arts and Devonport Regional Gallery are proud to present the 2022 Women’s Art Prize Tasmania.
This exhibition features 25 works by shortlisted finalists who entered the award in the hope of winning one of the three categories:
- The $15,000 Trawalla Foundation Acquisitive Prize, the $3,000
- Bell Bay Aluminium People’s Choice Award, and the $1,500
- Zonta International (District 23, Area 5) Emerging Artist Prize
The 2022 winner, Eddie James, is joining the distinguished prize-winner alumni amongst whom include: Anne Morrison (2019), Sarah Rhodes (2020) and Georgia Spain (2021).
As the Prize reaches its twentieth anniversary, the prize continues to honour the past, celebrate the present and look towards the future.
