The Whiteley at 20: Celebrating 20 Years of the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship

  • Fri 22 March 2019 until Sun 5 May 2019


22 March – 5 May 2019

The Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship was established by Ms Beryl Whiteley who generously allocated funds for the scholarship in memory of her son, Brett Whiteley, to provide young painters the opportunity to travel to Paris and explore Europe in order to develop their artistic practice.  Since its inception in 1999, 20 young painters have followed in the footsteps if Brett Whiteley who won the Italian Government Travelling Scholarship in 1959. The exhibition features works of the 20 scholarship winning artists, many of whom are well-known, alongside those of Brett Whiteley. Presented with the support of the Art Gallery of New South Wales through the Beryl Whiteley Bequest.
