Siliceous Award for Ceramic Excellence – Opening Night
The Siliceous Award is a recognition and celebration of artistic excellence and innovation in ceramics, pottery, and ceramic sculpture, and it attracts entrants from around Australia. Siliceous is an acquisitive competition, with the winning piece becoming part of CAQ’s permanent collection, one of the largest and most comprehensive collections of Australian ceramics. This year’s Award will be judged by Dr Rebecca Coates, curator, and former Director of Shepparton Art Museum.
The winner will be announced at the Opening night event on Friday 13 October, 6pm, at the Ipswich Community Gallery, D’Arcy Doyle Place, Ipswich. The exhibition will continue until Sunday 5 November.
All work, other than the recipient of the Siliceous Award, will be for sale.
