We would like to congratulate Tayler Buss on being awarded the Scott Wachel Memorial Bursary.
Those students who are curated into the annual student exhibition are invited to apply to this bursary, founded in the memory of a student, Scott Wachal, who exhibited with ace in May 2013 and very sadly passed away later that year.
$500 is awarded to contribute to the costs associated with a contemporary art project such as materials, residencies, etc. The student is then invited to deliver a public artist talk about the project the bursary supported.
Tayler will give an artist talk within the 2019/2020 programming year.
