The artists, their families and friends attended a recent scholarship presentation held in Goulburn. The scholarships were presented by Veolia Creative Arts Patron, Ms Jennifer Lamb OAM.

The 2014 Veolia Arts Practice Scholarship for $3000 was awarded to Robertson resident Julie Krone. Julie has been a visual artist for many years, researching cultural identity through printmaking practices. Julie has been offered an opportunity to study print making techniques in Argentina and hopes to utilise the experience by eventually teaching the new and improved techniques here in Australia.

The 2014 Veolia Arts Study Scholarship for $3000 was presented to Carolyn Young from Wamboin.  Carolyn has a PhD in Visual Arts and through photography is documenting Box-Gum Grassy Woodlands. Carolyn is using an established ecological model as her guide and has collaborated with ecologists, graziers and farmers to develop her understanding of Grassy Woodlands. Carolyn’s work responds to both beauty and land use trade-offs.

2014 Veolia Creative Arts Scholarships – Recognition Award of $1000 was presented to Lucinda McDonald of Moss Vale.  Lucinda is a painter and sculptor who has won prizes for her work and has been involved in a number of exhibitions and workshops.

2014 Veolia Creative Arts Scholarships – Recognition Award of $1000 was presented to Peter Ward of Exeter. Peter is a printmaking artist who hopes to utilise the scholarship funds towards a 2015 solo exhibition of his work at Megalo Print Studio & Gallery in Canberra.

2014 Veolia Creative Arts Scholarships – Recognition Award of $1000 was presented to Freya Jobbins of Picton.  Freya describes herself as a ‘plastic surgeon’ as she uses pre-loved and discarded plastic toys to create humanoid assemblages. Freya is in the process of creating a body of work for exhibition called “Humunculous”.

2014 Veolia Creative Arts Scholarships – Recognition Award of $1000 was presented to Anna Glynn of Jaspers Brush.  Anna’s broad range of art work involves painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, writing, film making, music and sound. Anna plans to use the scholarship funds to travel to Canada, where she has an opportunity to undertake studies that focus on nature, culture, science, technology and conservation.

The Veolia Mulwaree Trust congratulates the Artist’s on their success in being named Veolia Creative Arts Scholarships recipients for 2014 and wishes them all the best in the coming year.
