2022 Robert Foster F!NK National Metal Prize

 

 

Craft ACT is honoured to present the new Robert Foster F!NK national metal prize, supported by the Tall Foundation and F!NK + Co Director, Gretel Harrison.

The award will celebrate outstanding work in the field of contemporary metal working by designers and craftspeople - both established and emerging. In recognition of the value of high-quality craft making skills, good design and innovation ten artists will be selected and have their work exhibited in the popular DESIGN Canberra Festival. From the finalists, three makers, representing an established artist, an emerging artist, and an acquisition, will be selected and awarded generous cash prizes.

This program is generously supported by the Tall Foundation, F!NK + Co., and Craft ACT: Craft + Design Centre.
