Congratulations to Liam Benson on being selected as a finalist in the 2016 Glenfiddich Artist in Residence Prize. Liam is one of six Australian finalists shortlisted for the prize.
The Glenfiddich Artist In Residence program was started by The Glenfiddich Distillery, Scotland, in 2002 to encourage people to delight in life’s adventures. Over a decade after its inception, the program remains, “vibrant and has earned a world-wide reputation for its un-prescriptive and supportive approach.” Andy Fairgrieve, curator and coordinator of the program, shares that, “what never ceases to amaze me is that despite having had over 100 artists through our doors since we began, each one of them always sees the distillery with fresh eyes. I feel as long as we can carry on in this vein the program will continue to delight and surprise for years to come!”
