Rick Amor Drawing Prize 2010


Saturday, September 25, 2010 - Sunday, July 11, 2010, -


Admission: Free


Rick Amor, one of Australia's leading contemporary artists, has sponsored a $10,000 competition for small drawings at the Art Gallery of Ballarat. Amor says  "I hope that this prize gives people one more reason to keep drawing on paper… the most direct and intimate expression of an artist's sensibility". This inaugural exhibition of nearly 80 works has been selected from the more than 600 entries submitted. The winning drawing, judged by artist Paul Boston, winner of the 1991 John McCaughey Memorial Art Prize, will become part of the Gallery's collection.

Winner of the inaugural Rick Amor Drawing Prize

Brent Harris, Study for 'Deluge' 

This is a luminous and intriguing work drawn with great sensitivity and an appealing freshness of touch. The imagery is handled with such subtlety that there is only the merest hint of some ominous, unfolding human drama. This understatement leaves the viewer all the more fascinated.

Paul Boston, 2010
