Competitions and awards

Alan Sisley Memorial Fellowship. Alan Sisley (1952-2014) was Director of Orange Regional Gallery from 1991 to 2014 and was previously President of Regional & Public Galleries of NSW. A gifted communicator, he used his role to passionately advocate for the role art can play in peoples’ lives. Sisley was widely acknowledged for his risk taking projects, but he always placed the artist and the audience at the centre of his concerns.
This Fellowship, named in his honour, and awarded biennially, seeks to provide an opportunity for a NSW gallery worker to undertake a period of research or study to develop a project or program beneficial to their organisation. Applications Close Friday 30 June 2017
