Noel Counihan Commemorative Art Award

The Counihan Gallery In Brunswick is pleased to announce the Second Noel Counihan Commemorative Art Award.

To be awarded annually, the Noel Counihan Commemorative Art Award will recognise an outstanding contemporary artwork by an artist who engages with social, political, cultural or environmental subjects.

This year's theme is Peace and the Pursuit of Happiness.

In apparent global chaos how can we define peace? In the 21st Century where does happiness appear? Are these things fought for or only to be found? Do they exist as hopeful acts or as real outcomes? Can we transcend clichés and cynicism to bring into being in an authentic way?

The 2018 prize is a tailored professional development package to the value of $3,000.
This year, we are delighted to announce a People’s Choice Award of $1000 generously sponsored by the Sydney Road Brunswick Association.
