Evan Pank
Mildura Print Award

Congratulations to Evan Pank on being shortlisted as a finalist in the 2018 Mildura Print Award. Evan’s Keeping the Bastards Honest 2 has been selected for the Print Award and his work Christmas in Bohemia has been selected for the Emerging Artists Exhibition.

The Print Award takes place within the Australian Print Triennial and offers a three week residency with access to printmaking facilities at The Art Vault, Mildura. The Australian Print Triennial is a major international art event spearheaded by The Art Vault that will bring together artists, academics, arts ambassadors and practising printmakers from Australia and overseas to engage in a celebration of art printmaking and its significance in modern Australia’s Arts culture.

Professor Sasha Grishin AM FAHA says that “Unlike a major capital city, like Melbourne, Sydney or Canberra, where there are numerous cultural distractions, Mildura has the advantage being small and focused, like a natural ‘think tank’ devoted to particular art form. Printmaking in Mildura, since the establishment of the Art Vault, has gained a strong institutional and social base and a rapidly growing national reputation amongst Australian printmakers. A print triennial in Mildura has the potential of creating a national focus on printmaking and should with time set the agenda for printmaking in this country.”

Evan’s work Keeping the Bastards Honest 2 and Christmas in Bohemia will both be on display from October 30, 2018 until November 4 at The Art Vault, Mildura.
