2015 Burnie Print Prize

The Burnie Print Prize is a major national art award that presents high quality contemporary printmaking from artists living and working throughout the country. The prize acknowledges the historic role paper has played in the Burnie community, and contributes to the gallery’s substantial and significant permanent collection of works on paper.

Now in its fifth instalment, the prize attracts entries from Australia’s finest contemporary printmakers. The 2015 selection made by distinguished judges, Jason Smith, Curatorial Manager at the Queensland Art Gallery/Gallery of Modern Art, and significant Tasmanian printmakers, previous prize winner Helen Wright and Raymond Arnold, will continue to build the collection and the national reputation of the Burnie Regional Art Gallery.
