2020 A.M.E Bale Travelling Scholarship and Art Prize

The exhibition of finalists showcases the impressive works by the artists selected by the judging panel in the Major Award Travelling Scholarship, Oils or Acrylics and Works on Paper Award categories.

22 January to 7 February 

The A.M.E Bale Travelling Scholarship and Art Prize is awarded to Australian artists who have demonstrated talent and achievement in traditional styles. The art prize is intended to encourage, support and advance classical training of emerging artists (in their early to mid-career) at any stage of life, who are pursuing the study and practice of traditional art and who desire to study the works of old masters.

Alice Marian Ellen Bale (1875-1955) developed a reputation as one of Australia’s pre-eminent flower and still life painters of the early 20th century.  She established the A.M.E Bale Travelling Scholarship and Art Prize through her will to support Australian artists in perpetuity. The judging panel is comprised through the Twenty Melbourne Painters Society Inc who provide expert assistance to the trustee — Perpetual Trustee Company Ltd — in judging the award, taking into consideration the implementation of both the spirit and letter of Miss Bale’s will.
