We have some exciting news to share this week as four of our represented artists have been selected for several national awards. Black Asterisk is very well represented in the Wallace Art Awards this year by both Ewan McDougall and Gary Freemantle, whose work has recently joined us at the Asterisk. Both have been selected as finalists in the prestigious annual award, you can see the selection for yourself from September 8 at Pah Homestead. With several new purchases this year, Black Asterisk certainly does have a spot in the Wallace Arts Trust's good books. Our next congratulations goes out Emma Bass whose 'Imperfect' monograph has been selected as a finalist for the Best Awards by The Designers Institute of New Zealand, the winners of which will be announced October 9. And finally, a huge congratulations to Michael Springer who took out first place at the Edinburgh Realty Art Awards in Otago. The Edinburgh Art Awards is currently in its ninth rendition and is held in the historic Dunedin Railway Station by the Otago Art Society.
