Carclew is pleased to announce the recipients of once-off funding honouring the memory of Anya Machczynski, a former Arts Officer with Country Arts SA who dedicated her career to bring artistic opportunities to regional communities.
These two regionally based emerging artists have been awarded once-off grants to pursue their passion and interest in the arts.
Daniel Sutherland, 16 of Kapunda, has shown dedication to his interest in photography, extending his year 11 studies at Kapunda High to include a Diploma of Photography through the Photography Institute. Daniel’s already extensive CV includes his work as a freelance photographer and his position at Salon Rouge gallery where he indulges his passion for painting and exhibits his work.
Daniel has been devoted to photography for a long time but his interests within the past 6 months have also expanded into painting and will be using his grant to purchase materials for painting and to fund tuition fees for a Diploma of Photography.
Bradley Saegenschnitter, 17 of Angaston, discovered his passion for photography through his studies at Nuriootpa High School and is especially inspired by Adelaide photographer Denis Smith. Bradley’s enthusiasm has seen him travel through regional South Australia and New South Wales to capture images and explore lighting techniques.
Bradley has exhibited works in the SALA Festival and other public exhibitions and will use his grant to frame works for exhibition and sale and also to produce business cards and flyers to assist in promoting himself as a photographer.
Carclew received an overwhelming response to this once-off opportunity with a range exceptional applications submitted for consideration and wish to thank everyone who took the time to prepare an application.
The high standard of applications made it a very difficult decision in the end and all applicants are encouraged to continue to seek and explore other possibilities to develop their artform.
