Overview

2007 marks the tenth anniversary of the Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship.

 

The Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship enables an artist at the outset of his or her career to study art overseas at a recognised art institution or undertake a study program with an artist. The winning artist is selected on the basis of the artistic merit of work submitted for judging and the potential of their chosen course of study to benefit their professional development.

 

The original NSW Travelling Art Scholarship was established in 1900, and became Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship in 1997. The inaugural 1997 Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholar was Lin Li. The Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship has been awarded to Tony Schwensen (1998), Maria Ionico (1999), Katthy Cavaliere (2000), Monika Tichacek (2001), Benjiman Denham (2002), Sean Cordeiro and Claire Healy (2003), Kate Murphy (2004), Ms & Mr (2005) and Todd McMillan (2006).

 

The Helen Lempriere Travelling Art Scholarship is a partnership between the NSW Government and Perpetual Limited, which administers the Helen Lempriere Bequest. The Bequest was established under the will of Keith Wood to commemorate his wife, Helen Lempriere, who died in 1991 at the age of 83.
