2017 Finalist Gallery

Below is a gallery of the images submitted by those selected as the finalists of the John Fries Award 2017 (in alphabetical order by first name).

There are 12 finalists. This gallery is a sample of their style and mediums, and show their commitment to developing their artistic practice; they do not necessarily represent their finalist entry into the Awards.

Artists will have the opportunity to develop something new as their finalist entry, in collaboration with the Curator, Consuelo Cavaniglia.
