Bursary recipient announcement anticipated

Emerging artists nurturing a burning desire to further their studies in the visual arts have help at hand with the Gladstone Regional Art Gallery & Museum Society Golding Bursary for Visual Arts.

Applications have now closed and the winning applicant will be announced Friday 12 February 2010, by Society President, Bruce Hunt.

The Bursary is made possible with the generous assistance of Mr Cyril Golding, to help students who have to relocate to a metropolitan area in order to pursue studies in the visual arts.

The recipient receives $1000 each year for a maximum of three years to help defray some of the costs associated with study such as purchasing materials and payment of course fees.

Applicants must be a resident in and/or attended secondary school within the Gladstone Region, North Burnett or Banana Shires and be no more that 22 years old at the commencement of the tertiary course.

For further information please contact the Gallery/Museum on 4976 6766.
