Australian Art. Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre is proud to present the Art & Australia Collection 2003-2013, which includes a variety of innovative contemporary works of art including video, painting, sculpture, light installation, sound art and photography. 14 December 2013 – 27 January 2014.


Peter Madden She 2007 found photographs, pin and archival glue, 79.0 x 54.0cm Art & Australia Emerging Artist collection;

The Art & Australia Contemporary Art Award was established by the respected art journal of the same name, to promote the work of artists from Australia and New Zealand. The award focuses on artists in the first five years of their practice, supporting them with a critical text discussing their practice and the illustration of the work on the magazines back cover. To date, the work of twenty-four artists has been acquired for the collection, which represents not only a diversity of art practice but also cultural perspectives within Australian art today, all of which will be on show at Hazelhurst Regional Gallery & Arts Centre until 27 January 2014.

Some artists reinterpret abandoned materials into hybrid sculptural forms, others draw upon western and eastern painting traditions. One references history and Indigenous culture, another outsider art that exists on the fringes of mainstream art practice whilst others investigate traditional notions of photography and video art.

Since winning the award and entering the collection, many of these artist’s careers have flourished – Del Kathryn Barton: 2013 and 2008 Archibald Prize winner and Jonathan Jones: 2012 Adelaide Biennial of Australian Art, National Indigenous Triennial Canada to name a few.

Artists featured are Del Kathryn Barton, Karen Black, Rebecca Baumann, Kushana Bush, Louisa Dawson, Christian de Vietri, Pat Foster and Jen Berean, Chantal Fraser, Mark Hilton, Astra Howard, Sara Hughes, Jonathon Jones, Ash Keating, Gregor Kregar, James Lynch, Peter Madden, Sanne Maestrom, Nick Mangan, Amanda Marburg, Laith McGregor, Rob McHaffie, Peter Nelson, Selina Ou, Tom Polo, Sarah Ryan, Giles Ryder, Britt Salt, Noël Skrzypczak, Grant Stevens, Michelle Ussher, Emma White, Tim Woodward Jamil Yamani.
