The Anne and Gordon Samstag International Visual Arts Scholarships are renowned as a gilt–edged passport to success in the professional visual arts. Now in their thirteenth year and funded through a visionary bequest by American artist Gordon Samstag, the prestigious scholarships have enabled almost one hundred Australian artists to study overseas for lengthy periods of time.

This exhibition presents a selection of works by high–achieving Samstag artists, revealing something of the eclectic richness and cutting edge strategies of Australia’s brightest and hottest artistic talents.

The Samstag Scholarships are administered by the University of South Australia on behalf of Gordon Samstag’s trustee, Bank of America Private Bank, Florida, USA.

A University of South Australia Art Museum exhibition. Curated by Ross Wolfe. Catalogue essays by Ross Wolfe, Michael Newall, Russell Smith, M.M. Anderson, Daniel Palmer, Ben Curnow, Edward Colless and Mark Pennings. Foreword by Erica Green.
