The Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship provided financial assistance for a visual artist at the beginning of their career to undertake a one to two year program of professional development. The key focus of the program can be international but for the first time in 2010 it may also include national activities.
Formerly the New South Wales Travelling Art Scholarship, established in 1900, the Scholarship was renamed the Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship in 1997 on receiving support from the Helen Lempriere Bequest, managed by Perpetual. The Bequest was established under the will of Mr Keith Wood to commemorate his wife, Helen Lempriere, who died in 1991 at the age of 83. Helen Lempriere was a Melbourne-born artist who established her professional reputation while living in Europe from 1950 to 1966. She is represented in public collections in Australia including those of the Art Gallery of New South Wales.
