The ‘Tom Malone Prize’ brings together some of Australia’s most accomplished and inspiring glass artists, celebrates the innovative nature of the medium, and plays an integral role in the Art Gallery of Western Australia’s acquisition of works.
The exhibition showcases ‘how glass artists continue to invent, and reinvent, to challenge themselves technically and to find new frameworks to distil human experience in accessible and enlivening ways,’ notes the gallery.
