After 21 years of supporting the first art prize in Tasmania, the Wrest Point Art Awards, Federal Group has transferred the art prize to Australia’s first Art Hotel, The Henry Jones that has had close ties to Tasmanian art since it opened in 2004. The Henry Jones Art Hotel continues to exhibit over 400 artworks at any one time in the award-winning IXL jam factory hotel conversion on Hobart’s waterfront.

As an extension of their support for local artists, a $20,000 art prize has been established to support emerging early career artists, in line with The Henry Jones Art Hotel ethos and purpose and their dedication to growing and nurturing the art community in Tasmania.

The entries close on the 4th October, 2019 and the $20,000 prize will be announced on Thursday 28th November. The exhibition will be open to the public from Thursday 28th November until Sunday 8th December in the Henry Jones Packing Room and Atrium from 9am – 5pm.
