ADFAS Emerging Artist Residency and Solo Exhibition Award 

New Partnership between Eramboo and ADFAS: Emerging Artist Residency and Solo Exhibition Award

Applications close 30 July 2018

Eramboo is excited to announce a new partnership with the Ku-ring-gai branch of the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society (known as ADFAS).


ADFAS has sponsored an exciting opportunity for an emerging artist under 35 years that includes a one month artist in residence studio and exhibition at Eramboo.


ADFAS has generously funded an artist’s materials fee of $300, four weeks studio rental (August, September or October 2018), gallery hire and administration and mentoring by Eramboo. The residency will be followed by a solo exhibition within 6 months after completion of the studio month. Eramboo will provide access, advice and promotion of the emerging artist and installation assistance.


ADFAS Societies are run by volunteers and aim to foster interest in the decorative and fine arts, cultivate their application and study and encourage the preservation of our cultural and artistic heritage.  ‘One of our community activities in this mission is to encourage youth participation in the Arts and each year we fund projects to this end’.
