The Dame Elisabeth Lifetime Achievement Award for Australian Sculpture
Oct 9, 2015
McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery is pleased to announce Inge King AM as the recipient of the inaugural Dame Elisabeth Lifetime Achievement Award for Australian Sculpture.
'Over an astonishing seventy year career, Inge King has been one of the most determined and conscientious voices in Australian Art' said John M. Cunningham, Director, McClelland Sculpture Park+Gallery. 'The clarity of her vision and the quality of her form, expresses an inner strength and tension, which is comparable only to the great Australian landscape from which she has derived much of her power'.
Inge King was the unanimous choice of the judges John M. Cunningham (Chair), Doug Hall AM and Prof. Alison Inglis.
