Short list: 2011 Jennie Thomas Travelling Art Scholarship

Our congratulations go out to all short-listed contestants - Abbey Cecil, Leasha Craig, Michelle Gearin, Amy Hill, Rachael Ireland and Sylvia Ray - in the 2011 Jennie Thomas Travelling Art Scholarship award currently on at the University Gallery, Callaghan. Jennie Thomas is well known for her generosity, support of the arts and the warmest hugs in town. Each year she offers visual arts students in their Honours year a Travelling Art Scholarship to inspire their research and practice. Decision time seems to be tough, and often one scholarship turns to two. For 2011 the winners are Rachael Ireland and Abbey Cecil to whom our heartfelt congratulations go out to. We're looking forward to watching their careers develop.
