Gallery Parnella was delighted to welcome this year’s Bay of Fires Art Prize winner – Paul Ryan to speak to gallery visitors about his winning work and his general practise as an artist. Ryan encouraged questions from visitors and spoke openly about his lifestyle and passions.
When asked “Is there a dream (art) project you will be spending the prize money on?”
Ryan answered, “Living the life of an artist IS my dream project, and a prize like this (Bay of Fires Art Prize) enables me to keep living this way.”
Be sure to view the winning work and complete exhibition over the month of June – daily between 10am and 4pm at Gallery Parnella, 60 Cecilia St, St Helens.
