Bridget Dolan ‘The Unseen’

The votes are in and the winner of the People’s Choice for the 2018 Calleen Art Award is Sydney based artist Bridget Dolan for her dramatic painting The Unseen 2018 oil on polyester 120cm x 120cm.

“My work investigates the complicated nature of human relationships – what civility means in contemporary life and how we reach each other across cultural and ideological divides. I draw on my experience in the performing arts as a dancer and theatre maker to paint work that holds tension between brave vulnerability, tenderness and fear,” said Bridget.

This year the Calleen Art Award exhibition consisted of an amazing range of 46 outstanding paintings selected from over 200 entries received from around Australia.

Congratulations to Bridget Dolan who receives $500 courtesy of the Friends of the Gallery.
