RECENT SPONSORSHIP HIGHLIGHTS
Zhang | Winner of the 2023 Derivan People's Choice Award at the Ravenswood Art Prize
Congratulations to Louise Zhang for her outstanding achievement in securing the People's Choice Award with her mesmerising work, "Lucheng (One Part of Home)." This acrylic masterpiece on canvas, beautifully encased in a custom frame with a satin 2-pack paint finish, measures 122 x 203 cm and captivates viewers with its depth and craftsmanship.
Louise Zhang's artistry is deeply rooted in the rich tapestry of traditional Chinese shanshui landscape painting, a practice that translates to 'mountain and water.' Revered since the Daoist poets and artists of the fourth and fifth centuries, shanshui paintings are more than just visual art; they are a gateway to storytelling and imagination. Zhang’s work invites the viewer through captivating landscapes, blending historical inspiration with her unique narrative vision.
Honouring Heritage: Xavier Ghazi Wins 2023 Derivan Excellence Prize
We are thrilled to announce Xavier Ghazi as the recipient of the 2023 Derivan Work of Excellence Prize. At the 2023 Glebe Art Show Xavier's compelling piece, "The Remembering, Truganini," is an acrylic on canvas masterpiece that delves deep into the poignant history of Tasmania's Aboriginal people through the life of Truganini. Believed to have been the last surviving Tasmanian Aboriginal, Truganini's life story is a profound narrative of resilience amidst the tragedy that occurred to her people.
Intergenerational Connections Through Art: Nick Mesics Awarded 2023 Artist Choice at 100 Canberra
Nick Mesics, the recipient of the Artist Choice Award at the Centenarian Portrait Project, 100 Canberra brings to the canvas the vibrant story of Malcolm Whyte, a centenarian who defies the conventional bounds of aging.
A Portrait of Independence and Legacy
From the moment Nick met Malcolm, Malcolm's independence and vitality struck him. Living alone on the second floor without an elevator, Malcolm's daily life is a testament to his autonomy and zest for life. Through his portrait, Mesics illuminates Malcolm’s rich personal history—his childhood in India, symbolised by the colours of the Indian flag in his eyes, and his Scottish ancestry, represented by the McGregor tartan background.
Celebrating Intergenerational Art: Rika Jammer Wins 2023 People’s Choice at 100 Canberra

Her pencil work captures Laurie, a centenarian with a vibrant tale of courage, love, and contentment, reflecting the project's aim to bridge age gaps and celebrate life's rich narratives.
A Tale Captured in Pencil
Jammer's "Laurie Hancock" brings Laurie's adventures from Sydney’s eastern suburbs to his impactful service in New Guinea and Timor and his cherished family life in Canberra. The portrait goes beyond Laurie's 100 years, revealing a man of fun, wisdom, and humility, mirrored in Rika’s reflections and connection with him.
