UniSA Visual Arts graduate Zoe Woods has been selected for the inaugural Helpmann Academy Fellowship.
Valued at up to $20,000, the Fellowships fund opportunities to early career artists to further their artistic development internationally and throughout Australia.
Woods, who received her award at a ceremony at Government House earlier this month, plans to use her Fellowship to travel overseas to study the collection at the Corning Museum of Glass and the Rakow Library in New York City, and will undertake three weeks of glass engraving workshops with Pavlina Cambalova.
After returning to Australia, Woods will complete a six-week residency at Canberra Glassworks. She was one of three fellowship recipients.
The Helpmann Fellowships are possible through a grant from The James and Diana Ramsay Foundation.
