SIX : 2020 – An art initiative

Mossenson Art Foundation (‘MAF’) was incorporated in 2010. One of MAF’s objectives is to sponsor and encourage artists by means of art prizes and exhibitions.Mossenson Galleries has been exhibiting art produced bAustralian artists since 1993.

To mark the gallery’s milestone of 27 years of operation and acknowledging the current challenging environment for Western Australian visual artists, Mossenson Galleries and  MAF have contributed resources to present SIX : 2020.

SIX : 2020 aims to support Western Australian artists by providing exposure, backing and a venue to showcase quality artworks whilst at the same time making a meaningful contribution to the local art community.

Six artists who permanently reside in Western Australia will be selected to create at least four new works for SIX : 2020. An exhibition of the works will be held at Mossenson Galleries, 115 Hay St Subiaco, from 21st November to 5th December 2020.

No restrictions will be placed on colour or material selection for this project. There is no particular theme for the exhibition.Artists should only complete an expression of interest if they are able to commit to the indicative program and can demonstrate a capacity to deliver their project on time.

Artists are invited to develop their own proposals based on their interests and philosophical approach to their own art practices. Selection of the chosen artists will be based solely on the written and visual support material presented in the Expressions of Interest.

Mossenson Art Foundation will grant each of the successful artists $1,000.00 (ex GST) towards materials for the new artworks. Artist will receive all of the sales proceeds without the gallery taking any commission.

The selection panel will consist of:

  • Lancelot Hyde _ Curator of the Royal Perth Hospital Art Collection
  • Connie Petrillo _ Curator of the St John of God Health Care Art Collection
  • and a representative from the Mossenson Art Foundation
