The Linden team has been working hard behind the scenes to develop a very special initiative – we’re writing to share with you our dreams for the Juncture Art Prize, through which we hope to find, inspire and nurture the next generation of Australian artists.
As art lovers you would know that great art needs time and space to be created. Great artists need more than just a studio space. To thrive our artists need inspiration, a strong community behind them, and mentorship from within and outside their industry. As a leading art gallery dedicated to promoting mid-career talent, Linden New Art can only achieve our mission when these artists reach their potential. Find out more about the Juncture Art Prize here.
I’m thrilled to share that Creative Partnerships Australia is already behind this initiative through their Plus1 program. From now until 31 May they will dollar match every donation to Linden up to $50,000. I’m also pleased to share that through leadership gifts from Linden’s board of directors and our community of very special donors, we have already secured $40,500, and now we need $9,500 to achieve our goal.
Every donation made up to 31 May will be doubled by Creative Partnerships Australia. Click on link below to make a tax-deductible donation online or you may call me on 03 9534 0099 if you would like any further information.
All of us at Linden New Art are deeply passionate about enabling mid-career artists in Australia to reach their full potential. Thank you for your continued support of our community of artists through your engagement with Linden.
