Exhibition will be open from the 7th – 18th November 2018, daily from 9am-5pm.
Location: The Henry Jones Packing Room & IXL Atrium, 25 Hunter Street Hobart.
After 21 years of supporting the first art prize in Tasmania, the Wrest Point Art Awards, Federal Group has transferred the art prize to Australia’s first Art Hotel, The Henry Jones that has had close ties to Tasmanian art since it opened in 2004. The Henry Jones Art Hotel continues to exhibit over 400 artworks at any one time in the award-winning IXL jam factory hotel conversion on Hobart’s waterfront.
As an extension of their support for local artists, a $20,000 art prize has been established to support emerging early career artists, in line with The Henry Jones Art Hotel ethos and purpose and their dedication to growing and nurturing the art community in Tasmania.
Visitors to the exhibition will be able to purchase artworks and vote for their favourite, with the artist of the most popular work receiving a $1,000 framing prize from Wagner Framemakers.
