Holding Redlich has sponsored a major Queensland art prize, highlighting its continued support for the arts.
In partnership with the Flying Arts Alliance, the firm has co-sponsored the annual Art For Life Award as part of Queensland’s regional art awards.
The award aims to showcase the works of the state’s regional and remote area artists, with a prize of $10,000 on offer for the winner.
Rockhampton’s Erin Dunne was announced as the 2018 winner, with her entry Destination Duaringa, a paper art book depicting scenes from a central Queensland road trip.
In congratulating Ms Dunne, Holding Redlich’s Queensland managing partner Paul Venus said the firm is very excited about its three-year partnership with the Flying Arts Alliance.
“We have been looking for ways to support the arts in Queensland so that we can make a genuine contribution to the arts and broader communities,” he expressed.
“Partnering with Flying Arts enables us to do both and we’re excited to co-sponsor the Art for Life Award.”
The firm is “thrilled to support this wonderful initiative and congratulate winning artist Erin Dunne.”
“In addition, we are also very pleased to be the touring exhibition partner for 2019,” he continued.
In touting the firm’s long-time support of the arts, national managing partner Ian Robertson said, “supporting the arts is part of our DNA and we are very proud to be able to significantly expand our national arts program with this new Queensland partnership.”
