Chan-Davies Art Prize
Chan Hampe Galleries Co-Founders support Art Award for LASALLE Fine Arts graduating students
The Chan-Davies Art Prize is open to all final year students of LASALLE’s BA (Hons) Fine Arts programme and includes a SGD 15,000 cash prize and a solo exhibition supported by Chan Hampe Galleries to take place within 12 months of the award. "Nick and I have seen so many talented fine arts students struggle during that first year out of school, we wanted to do something that would speak to and support artists during that particularly challenging transitional period," states Angie Chan.
The annual award will be promoted in January each year, with the winner being announced at the opening of the College’s annual graduation showcase, The LASALLE Show, each May. Eligible students are invited to submit up to three original artworks in either 2-D or 3-D media. Artworks will be judged based on originality, conceptual rigour, and coherence between the concept and the finished work. The judging panel will include Angie Chan, well-known artist and Cultural Medallion recipient Milenko Prvacki, and a rotating representative from LASALLE’s Faculty of Fine Arts.
Nick Davies adds, "By encouraging artists in their early career with this kind of financial support and exposure we're seeking to recognise and reward promising young artists from LASALLE, and over time help to cultivate the next generation of local artists."
