Young Blood at the Academy Galleries

Young Blood at the Academy Galleries

Young + Gifted is the current exhibition on show at the Academy Galleries in Wellington.

The exhibition was created as a result of the establishment of the annual Tui McLauchlan Art Award which offers support for young and novice artists in the form of a $2000 prize.

Exhibition selectors and judges Julie Catchpole (Director, The Suter Art Gallery Nelson), Megan Dunn, (arts writer and reviewer) and Claudia Arozqueta (Director, New Zealand Academy of Fine Arts) have awarded the 2014 Tui McLauchlan Art Award to Auckland-based artist Yona Lee for her work Hat Line, 2013. The installation incorporates a figurative hat in a minimalist line drawing.

All three judges agreed that Yona Lee’s piece was a definitive winner. “I have no doubt that she will continue to make compelling, intriguing and innovative works in the future.” Claudia Arozqueta

“There were also several artists who strongly deserved mention for the quality of their entries; as judges we agreed on many works but there were disagreements too: a timely reminder of arts ability to provoke argument! I hope all entrants continue to purse their work with energy.” Megan Dunn

Special mention was given to the following six works: Megan Campbell Newby (These Things Are Not Inconsistent), Shane Gallagher (Shards), Elisabeth Pointon (The Self Induced Swamp of Mental Crocodiles), Frances Scott (Manufactured Landscape), Jake Silby (Self Portrait), and Melissa West (Wordless Messages).
The Tui McLauchlan Art Award will be presented on Sunday 16 February at 2 pm. Young + Gifted is open until 19 February 2014 and can be viewed 7 days, 10 am - 5 pm at the Academy Galleries, 1 Queens Wharf, Wellington.
