"132 years ago, artist Evelyn Chapman was born. This week the winner of the biennial $50,000 Evelyn Chapman Art Award for young artists will be announced.
The Evelyn Chapman Trust was established by the bequest Pamela Thalben-Ball, Chapman’s artist daughter, and awards a $50,000 scholarship every two years to support a young Australian painter to further their art education both in knowledge and artistic practice. The artist receiving the award can use the scholarship overseas or in Australia, at a recognised and well-established art school or work at an organisation on a program or project that enhances the artist’s artistic skills."
