HELEN PYNOR Awarded 2023 Sir William Dobell Foundation Residency Scholarship

December 1, 2023

Helen Pynor has been awarded the 2023 Sir William Dobell Foundation’s Artist-in-Residence Scholarship, providing a stipend and funding support for a residency at Bundanon in 2023. Helen will use the beautiful location and stimulation of the Bundanon artistic community to develop her new work, exploring native Australian fauna bones. The scholarship is awarded on the basis of the artist’s work, their proposed project, and what they are aiming to achieved both during and as a result of the residency. Watch this space for some exciting work from Helen next year!

The Bundanon Artist-in-Residence program offers over 150 multidisciplinary artists and researchers studio space on the organisation’s secluded Homestead site to further develop their work. Helen will be joined by other DMG exhibiting artists Nina Walton, and Julia Davies and Lisa Jones.
