The Samstag Exhibition

13 May – 5 June 1993
Shane Carn, Ruth McDougall and Roger Noakes, Mark Hislop, Jacqueline Hocking and Nigel Jamieson, Sally Mannall and Ruth Marshall, Sally Cox, and Robert Cleworth

The Samstag awards, which are Australia’s most valuable scholarships for visual artists, were established through the US$5 million bequest for millionaire American artist Gordon Samstag who taught from 1961 to 1972 at the South Australian School of Art.

The ten artists will receive funding to pursue further studies in the visual arts at institutions overseas, including Chicago, New York, Amsterdam and London. Their work embraces the widest range of disciplines, including painting, sculpture, installation, mixed media and textiles.
