AAR-Glover-Prize-2022-Winner-Jennifer-RiddleAfter receiving a record total of 703 entries and careful deliberation from the judges, the Glover Prize has announced its 42 finalists for 2023.

These finalists represent the Judges’ selection of the best artworks of the Tasmanian landscape, chosen from the 703 entrants coming from every Australian state, as well as from UK, USA, New Zealand, France, Italy and Mexico.

These 42 artworks will be on display at the Glover Prize Exhibition at Falls Park Pavilion in Evandale, Tasmania during March this year.

Of the 42 finalists, 21 are artists from Tasmania, 20 are mainland artists and one artist is from Kentucky, USA. Four of our finalists have previously been selected as the ultimate winner of the Glover Prize and two previous People’s and Children’s Choice winners are featured.

Although we always welcome familiar faces, it’s also exciting to see that there are artists that have never before had work presented as part of a Glover Prize Exhibition.

The judges for the Glover Prize 2023 are Director of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), Suzanne Cotter; Director of Niagara Gallery, William Nuttall; and Tasmanian based artist, Lucienne Rickard.

The 42 finalists selected by the judges will be in the contention for the $75,000 cash prize and a bronze maquette of the colonial artist John Glover. The John Glover Society Inc. will acquire the winning artwork for its collection.

The Glover Prize 2023 winner will be announced on Friday 10 March, while the exhibition will take place at the historic Falls Park Pavilion in Evandale from Saturday 11 March through to Sunday 19 March.

At the exhibition, visitors will have to opportunity to vote for their favourite artwork; with the votes being tallied up on Sunday 19 March to decide this year’s People’s Choice and Children’s Choice Award winners.
