Robyn Sweaney, featured in the current issue of BAM, has been awarded the 2016 Border Art Prize at the Tweed Regional Gallery.
The winning artwork is Oasis, acrylic on linen, 2015 (pictured), of which acclaimed artist and judge Euan MacLeod said, "This beautifully painted work shows an ordered vision which on continued viewing becomes unsettling".
The 2016 Border Art Prize will be on exhibition at the Tweed Regional Gallery from Friday May 6 to Sunday July 10, 2016. The annual Border Art Prize is shared between Tweed Regional Gallery and Gold Coast City Art Gallery as a joint initiative to support the endeavours of artists living and working in the NSW North Coast and South Eastern Queensland. Artists living within the Tweed Shire, Gold Coast City, Scenic Rim, Ballina, Byron and Kyogle Shires and Lismore, Logan and Redland City Council areas are eligible to enter.
