SHEPPARTON ART MUSEUM (SAM) hosts a dynamic program of temporary and collection-based exhibitions. A significant aspect of the museum’s program revolves around its two major biennial prizes, the Sidney Myer Fund Australia Ceramic Award and the Indigenous Ceramic Award. Two of the major collection exhibitions in the 2018 program drew largely from recent acquisitions. Intimate Realities showcases a selection of sculptural works by Australian artists who engage through quiet contemplation, references to the body and musical refrain. Ever-present is an exhibition of historic and contemporary works by Indigenous artists. It explores the many ways that Country is explored and revealed through painting, ceramics and objects.
The Indigenous Ceramic Award is a $20,000 acquisitive prize that contributes to the museum’s significant holdings of Indigenous ceramic art and provides exchange opportunities for Indigenous artists. The Sidney Myer Fund Australian Ceramic Award is an acquisitive ceramic art award, offering a total of $50,000 in prize money. The award celebrates contemporary Australian artists – both established and emerging – who work in the ceramic medium.
Prize season is upon us, with a slew of artists winning some of the calendar’s most prestigious prizes, finalists coming to the fore and galleries holding exhibitions to show off award works to the public.
