Artists pursuing studies encouraged to apply for bursary
EMERGING artists pursuing tertiary studies in the visual arts are encouraged to apply for the 2014 Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum Society Golding Bursary for Visual Arts.
Established with the generous assistance of the late Mr Cyril Golding, the bursary is carried on now by his widow, Shirley Golding and administered by the members of the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum Society.
Society president Bruce Hunt has extended the deadline for submissions and spoke about the Bursary's assistance for students who have to relocate to a metropolitan area.
"The Bursary provides the recipient with $2000 each year for a maximum of three years," he said.
"The financial support helps to defray costs associated with study, such as purchase of materials and payment of course fees."
