Five exciting artists will present exhibitions as part of the 2017 Sidney Myer Fund Australian Ceramic Award (SMFACA) at Shepparton Art Museum this June. This year’s exhibition supports the rich, vibrant and diverse use of the ceramic medium, and will include the work by five contemporary artists Glenn Barkley, Karen Black, Laith McGregor, Jenny Orchard and Yasmin Smith.

SAM’s SMFACA is the premier national award for Australian artists working in ceramics with a $50,000 prize acquisition to be awarded to one of the artists on the opening night of Saturday 17 June 2017.


The 2017 Award will be judged by Jacqueline Doughty, Curatorial Manager, The Ian Potter Museum of Art, The University of Melbourne; Jason Smith, Director, Geelong Art Gallery; and Dr Rebecca Coates, Director, Shepparton Art Museum.


The winner for this acquisitive prize will be announced during the exhibition’s official opening event on Saturday 17 June 2017 (RSVP here). Accompanying the exhibition will be a series of public programs and floor talks.
