Splash has been established to showcase Australian artists work in the medium of watercolour. It is an acquisitive award with funds from the Fornari Bequest, by the will of the late Lena May Fornari and is a legacy of her support of the arts in Victoria. Splash focuses on contemporary watercolour practice and will be granted to an outstanding original artwork in the medium of watercolour which will become part of the McClelland Sculpture Park + Gallery collection. The award aims to promote artistic excellence and to support contemporary artists while expanding McClelland’s high-quality collection for the benefit of the local community and Mornington Peninsula region.
