9 Mar – 13 May @ Art Gallery of WA ·
Presented by Art Gallery of WA ·

The Tom Malone Prize is a highly respected national event within the Australian glass art community. Glass is one of the most exciting and dynamic art forms in this country. It is a uniquely captivating medium, capable of almost endless transformation. Glass provides a perfect vehicle for the exploration of a range of themes, from the personal to the observational, and Australian makers are some of the world leaders in the medium.

Each year, the Tom Malone Prize presents new works by many of Australia’s best glass artists. In 2019, the exhibition features the work of Lewis Batchelor (SA), Clare Belfrage (SA), Matthew Curtis (ACT), Liam Fleming (SA), Mark Eliott (NSW), Jennifer Kemarre Martiniello (ACT), Marc Leib (WA), Jeremy Lepisto (ACT), Nick Mount (SA), Stephen Skillitzi (SA), Anne Sorensen (WA), and Kayo Yokoyama (NSW).

The Tom Malone Prize has played an integral role in the Gallery’s acquisition of works by Australia’s most inspiring, innovative and accomplished artists in this medium. Capturing some of the diversity in the approaches to glass in Australia, the Prize showcases key trends in glass art and the incredible skills of the makers. Now in its 17th year, the Tom Malone Prize continues with the support of Ms Sheryl Grimwood, AGWA Foundation Benefactor.

Tom Malone Prize 2019 will be on display at AGWA 9 March – 13 May 2019. The winner of the $15,000 acquisitive prize will be announced on 12 March 2019.
