Joanna Gambotto, winner of the Dobell Drawing Prize #22 People’s Choice Award
Congratulations Joanna Gambotto, winner of the Dobell Drawing Prize #22 People’s Choice Award.
The winning work Hill End Interior 1 (Denningtons Cottage: Kim and Lino’s) pays tribute to the vital role Hill End has played and continues to play in the Australian visual arts, attracting and inspiring generations of artists.
“While I was studying at NAS, I used to come into this gallery and look up to the artists whose work was hanging here. So it was wonderful to be a finalist for the Dobell Drawing Prize – to get this prize is such an honour. When I did the residency at Hill End in 2019, I had no idea how many good things would come out of that time.” – Joanna Gambotto
The Dobell Drawing Prize #22 is now showing at NAS Gallery until 22 May 2021.
