Orange Regional Gallery has announced that the recipient of ‘The Seed’ 2023 exhibition opportunity is artist Sophie Lampert, NAS MFA 2020.
Sophie will develop an exhibition of large-scale sculptural works which explore the lives and atypical vocations of a number of women throughout history, whose brilliant careers in unusual fields defied both their gender and the social norms of the times.
‘The Seed’ is a partnership between Orange Regional Gallery and National Art School which offers recent NAS graduates a unique opportunity to present their first solo exhibition in a public institution. Held annually at Orange Regional Gallery, the program provides exhibition space, curatorial support and publicity for an emerging artist.
