Ballarat Arts Foundation grant recipient Amy Tsilemanis returns from New York

The Courier December 17 2014

Ballarat Arts Foundation grant recipient Amy Tsilemanis returns from New York with an insight into a new Melbourne exhibition.

Winner of the Ballarat Arts Foundation Rotary Club of Ballarat South Award, Ms Tsilemanis travelled to New York to spend time as project documenter of the travelling exhibition of Melbourne printmakers entitled 37degrees48’S: artists navigate Melbourne

She produced a multimedia piece about the visual art project, which explored the cultural diversity of contemporary Australia as illustrated by life in Melbourne.

Ms Tsilemanis’ project was to produce a piece about the exhibition that was part of Print Week

“It has been so exciting to be part of this project, capturing these inspiring artists’ processes and concepts, making local and international connections and building on my skills in photography, film and arts media,” she said.
