Titirangi, July 7, 2011 - July 31, 2011
The 2011 TCAC Emerging Artists Awards opens in Titirangi on Thursday July 7. Two respected judges will award three grants to fresh new talent – one $1000 Arts West Grant, including a plaque that the artist will hold for one year, one $500 Arts West Grant, and a $500 Carmela McHardy Grant.
This year, Whitecliffe Year 4 BFA Fine Arts major Megan Jefferies, was chosen out of over 100 entries to be one of 20 finalists.
The emerging artists awards was developed to bring out emerging talent in artists that have had little or no exposure to the public. It also assists by guiding participants through a number of processes they will need to understand as they emerge: applications for awards, competitions, funding, exhibiting, advertising, building databases of buyers, galleries etc.
The award ceremony will be held at Lopdell House in Titirangi on Thursday July 7 at 6p.m
