M16 Artspace Young Drawer’s Prize sponsored by Capital Chemist.

This year we are thrilled to be presenting the inaugural Capital Chemist Young Drawers prize! This is new initiative which will run annually alongside our main Drawing Prize

We’ve had 31 wonderful entries that will all be on display in Gallery 2. It is a huge privilege to be able to support the emerging artists in the ACT, and to see the excellent range of drawings made by students of all ages.

The exhibition will be open to the public for the same duration as the Drawing Prize: from 12pm on Friday the 26th of November and continues until the 10th of December.

*Works in the Young Drawer’s prize will not be for sale.

Red Pink Bundle

Rox De Luca

Found Plastics and wire

Dimensions variable Artist note:

DeLuca’s work is made out of plastics that flourish on Bondi and Rose Bay beaches. The gathering and sorting process is followed by the jewellery-like threading of plastics onto wire. The resulting bundles are reflections of our coastal environment and its relation to the greater human landscapes of waste.
