Congratulations to Anna Carey, who has recently been announced as a finalist in the 2011 Queensland Regional Art Awards for her work Sunroom.

Presented by Flying Arts, the annual Queensland Regional Art Awards is a prestigious art prize offering emerging artists the opportunity to expose and promote their work to a wide audience. It brings together visual artists from all around Queensland in a celebration of regional and remote art makers, their art work and the extraordinary places in which they live.

In 2011 all participating artists will be featured in the online exhibition and have the opportunity to be selected for the touring exhibition, curated by Michele Helmrich (Art Museum Curator, University of Queensland Art Museum). Following a launch, the exhibition will tour throughout regional Queensland.

The theme for 2011 is: Connection. Artists are asked to respond to the theme, exploring particularly how the idea of ‘connection’ relates to their lives and people and/or places of regional and remote Queensland communities.
The winner of the prize will be announced on 26 September, 2011.
For more information on Anna Carey's work, which is currently being shown as part of our Built exhibition, please contact the gallery.
