Helen Lempriere Scholarship Recipients

Our congratulations go to Stephen King, Andrew Townsend and Jina Lee, the recipients of the 2020 Helen Lempriere Scholarships – awarding $30,000 to three artists at varying career stages, to foster and promote contemporary Australian sculpture. Gifted as part of the Helen Lempriere Bequest to further develop artistic practice through travel, study and the purchase of new equipment, the Scholarship also supports the recipients’ inclusion in Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi. Selected as the senior artist recipient, King works across sculpture, printmaking and painting. King’s life as a grazier based in rural New South Wales informs his practice, underpinned by our relationship with the environment and climate change, genetics and the continuum of life. Townsend is this year’s mid-career artist and together with his collaborator and partner, artist Suzie Bleach, they are renowned for their striking sculptures of animals and humans. Emerging artist Lee has produced sculptures for public spaces and private collections nationally and internationally, focusing on simplified organic shapes sculpted in a variety of stones.

This year’s Scholarship recipients have previously exhibited at Sculpture by the Sea, Bondi and Cottesloe – with King’s participation in the next Bondi program making him one of three artists to have exhibited at the show 20 times or more.

The Good Initiative Award

We extend our congratulations to Dean Cross, the inaugural recipient of Goulburn Regional Art Gallery’s The Good Initiative. Launched in July, the biennale opportunity awards $20,000 for a major commission, making it one of the most generous prizes offered by a regional gallery in Australia. The first iteration was open to artists in the early stages of their careers,
