Young artist and Perc Tucker Regional Gallery Trainee Matt Clark had booked his first trip to the Brisbane galleries and was saving for the 2011 Venice Biennale, when he tragically died in October 2009.
To remember him, the Matt Clark Travelling Scholarship was established with donations given by the Townsville arts and broader community. In keeping with Matt’s desire to travel and broaden his arts experiences the scholarship has been set up to benefit young Townsville based visual artists, supporting
them to travel to art events and exhibitions outside of their region, to engage with professionals and develop their practice.
This $1,000 Matt Clark Scholarship is currently closed until 2018. The successful applicant will be announced on 27 October to honour Matt’s passing.
The scholarship is administered by La Luna Youth Arts, Umbrella Studio contemporary arts, and supported by the Clark Family. Donations are always welcome.
