SAM Local Spotlight

31 Mar 2018 - 13 May 2018

From 31 March to 13 May 2018, Shepparton Art Museum (SAM) will go local, spotlighting artistic practice from the region. SAM Local Spotlight is an opportunity for an artist to exhibit a body of work at SAM. 

We are proud to announce Kate Hill and Luke Pither as the 2018 SAM Local artists. They will each produce a body of work for the SAM Local exhibition.

SAM Local Spotlight is an exciting, profile-raising exhibition for a regional artist. The aim of the show is to encourage, stimulate and promote local and regional cultural activities as part of SAM’s annual program. This is also great opportunity to gain professional experience working in an art museum context - working with SAM's team across curatorial, marketing and communications, registration, education and public programs, and much more.

Proposals were accepted from artists living in or originally from the north central Victorian region including the Goulburn, Campaspe, Benalla and Wangaratta, or who maintain strong connections with these locations. Applications have now closed. All applicants will be advised by Friday 17 November, 2017.

Exhibition opening celebration: Wednesday 4 April 2018
