The following notice has just been received from the Art Gallery of NSW Library...

We are sorry to inform you that the [Art Gallery of NSW] Library will be closed from 16 April 2007 and will reopen on 18 June 2007.

William Fletcher Foundation Scholarships!

The William Fletcher Foundation is offering $1000 scholarships, open to final year art students.

The William Fletcher Foundation was established in 1985 to celebrate the life and
to commemorate the work of William Ernest Maurice Fletcher (1924-1983), painter and printmaker, whose integrity as an artist was not compromised by his material difficulties and lifetime fight with cardiac asthma. The Grants are awarded annually to outstanding young visual arts students who demonstrate excellence in painting, drawing, printmaking or stage design.

To be eligible your course should involve a reasonable emphasis on skills in one or more of painting, drawing, print-making and stage design. You must supply evidence of high achievement in the practice of one or more of these disciplines.

Note: Work that is wholly photographic or computer-generated is not eligible but the submitted works may incorporate elements of either.

Closing date for entries is 30th April.

Copies of the application form are available from the NAS Library desk.
