Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran: 2015 Sidney Myer Award

Ramesh Mario Nithiyendran has been announced as one of this year’s Sidney Myer Fund Australian Ceramic Award. With a $50,000 prize awarded to one of the artists this August, the biennial Award is the premier Australian ceramic art prize.

The 2015 Australian Ceramic Art Award attracted 100 Australian artists from exemplary master potters through to contemporary artists exploring ceramic traditions and the medium’s potential for intervention in a range of aesthetic and political endeavours. It was a fantastic field of applicants and proposed exhibitions.

Each of the winning artists will be commissioned to produce an exhibition of new work for display at Shepparton Art Museum (SAM) from 22 August to 22 November 2015. The artists will also travel to Shepparton to give presentations and run master-classes for local and visiting artists on the celebratory opening and announcement day of the $50,000 prize winner on Saturday 22 August, so keep this date free in your calendars!

See more info and watch developments on Ramesh’s works on the SAM website.
