About Stephen Travers:
Stephen was initially inspired to pursue art when his daughter’s year 12 major work won a year’s scholarship at the Julian Ashton Art School, an urge that he had until then subdued every day for 25 years.

Upon completion of introductory TAFE Cert IV Fine Arts subjects in drawing and painting in 2006 and 2007 which provided some enforced structure and input, Stephen then went on to pursue the areas which have always captured his imagination – the light, colour, shape and texture of the Australian natural environment. In 2015 he took the step of leaving regular employment to work full-time at his art.
Stephen’s paintings often include warm and inviting depictions of Waratahs and Gymea Lillies as well as other native Australian flora.

Hawkesbury Art Prize – Entries close September 8th 2021

Hawkesbury Art Prize 2021

Reminder The Hawkesbury Art Prize is closing 5:00pm Wednesday 8th September 2021

Opening Event and Awarding of Prizes: Saturday 9th October 2021 and will be opened by Federal Member for Macquarie, Susan Templeman.

www.hawkesburyartprize.com.au

The Hawkesbury Art Prize Inc. is a non-acquisitive art award originally established in 2011 operating as a not for profit event run by an incorporated committee of dedicated volunteers.

1st Prize, The Hawkesbury Art Prize: $10,000 plus 2 week art residency at Glenhuntly Estate, Kurrajong

Highly Commended: $1,000 plus 2 week art residency at Glenhuntly Estate, Kurrajong.

Highly Commended (Hawkesbury Resident): $1,000

4 x Commended: Minor prize attached to this award

‘Packers Prize’ (selected by committee): $500

The art prize is for a painting or collage that is inspired by contemporary Australian identity. Artists are invited to respond to the concept of contemporary identity in Australian life. Accordingly, the theme often helps artists explain the rapidly changing environment in which they live, or, conversely, promotes diverse portrayals of history, landscape, and ways of seeing.

The aim of the Hawkesbury Art Prize is to promote art in the Hawkesbury/Western Sydney region and increase awareness of art and cultural activity, to the mutual benefit of community, artists and students. Profits have led to the establishment of financial scholarship for talented and aspirational young artists in the region.

The Prize attracts a national audience and high profile participants to the Hawkesbury region, embracing the cultural and economic environment of the community. Around 40 – 50 finalists are invited to exhibit and sell their work at the Opening Exhibition, which follows the announcement of winners.

We look forward to seeing the exhibition in October.

2015 Winner Hiren Patel “Winter Light Sydney”

2019 Winner Ben Tankard “Aussie As 2”

2011 Winner: Naomi Grant “Beachscape”
