The finalists for the 2013 $20,000 Bay of Fires Art Prize were announced today.


The judges faced a difficult task in reducing the 187 very fine entries to just 30 finalists.  This year’s judging panel is Prof. Noel Frankham from UTAS in Hobart, Katie Dyer from the National Art School Gallery in Sydney and Queensland Artist Ann-Maree Reaney.


The finalist will have their works exhibited for the final judging on the 8th June 2013.  The Exhibition Opening and Prize Presentation will be held at Gallery Parnella in St Helens that evening.


Of the 30 finalists, the vast majority are Tasmania artists with six coming from interstate, three from Victoria, two from New South Wales and one from Queensland.
