"The 18th Gold Coast International Ceramic Art Award"
1999-11-05 until 1999-12-03
Gold Coast City Art Gallery
Gold Coast, , AU Australia

Gold Coast City Art Gallery is delighted to host the 18th Gold Coast International Ceramic Art Award, and the last Ceramic Art Award for the millennium. One of the most anticipated events on the Gallery's annual exhibition calendar, this year's award will be judged by leading contemporary Australian ceramic artist Janet DeBoos, who follows in a long line of illustrious judges including Gwyn Hanssen Piggott, Peter Timms and Joan Campbell. Finalists will be competing for the acquisitive first prize of $5,000, as well as a non-acquisitive merit award of $250 offered by Queensland Pottery Supplies in conjunction with Walkers.

In 1999 the award has attracted an impressive 217 entries from 146 artists from all over Australia, as well as 18 overseas countries, including the United Kingdom, New Zealand, China, Turkey, South Africa, Norway, Khazakstan, the United States, Taiwan, Switzerland and Israel.

Ms Janet DeBoos selected 82 entries from the impressive selection for final judging and exhibition: 56 from Australia, and 26 from 13 overseas countries. The exhibition features 82 of these final entries, including pieces that vary from the functional to the decorative; vases, platters, vessels and sculptures.

The Ceramic Art Award was established in 1981 to initiate a collection of ceramic art for the Gold Coast City Art Gallery, and to provide a forum for ceramic artists practising in the South East Queensland Region. As the oldest international award in the country, the Gold Coast International Ceramic Art Award has contributed to the establishment of what is arguably one of the best contemporary ceramic collections held in a regional gallery in Australia.

This annual event provides a unique opportunity for Australian ceramicists to exhibit their work alongside that of their international contemporaries in a competitive forum. Gold Coast City Art Gallery continues to benefit from the high quality of unique work acquired through the Award, whilst the popularity and awareness of the Award continues to grow as is evidenced by the vast number of entries received, and the annually high attendances of the exhibition.
