The Parliament would like to thank principal sponsor, Telstra Corporation, once again for their generous support of the NSW Parliament Plein Air Painting Prize 2017. In Telstra, we have a partner with an equal commitment to fostering talent within the artistic community and a commitment to giving something back to the community which their people and customers are a part of.
Telstra are also once again sponsoring a series of plein air painting workshops in high schools across New South Wales in 2017. The workshops are taught by contemporary plein air artists and are a fantastic opportunity for students studying year 9 or 10 visual arts to learn more about the techniques and practice of plein air painting. Some of the students’ works will be selected to hang alongside the main exhibition at the Parliament.
