Entries are open for Toowoomba Regional Art Gallery’s (TRAG) nationally recognised Contemporary Wearables ’21 Biennial Jewellery Award and Exhibition.
Toowoomba Region Mayor Paul Antonio said the awards were the Gallery’s contribution to promoting excellence in contemporary adornment.
Mayor Antonio said the biennial event, which was established in 1989 with the aid of the Toowoomba Gallery Society, was open to contemporary makers who were permanent residents.
“Council is proud to support this prestigious award. It is Council’s major funded initiative for contemporary visual arts practice in the Gallery’s 2021 program,” Mayor Antonio said.
“Council is proud to support Australian artists and provides $15,000 for acquisitions to continue building one of the most cohesive surveys of contemporary jewellery and object practice in Australia.”
