We were driving back from a visit with my mother on the Central Coast when the news came through. Several months back, I applied via the NAVA website (National Association of Visual Artists), for the Windmill Trust Scholarship which provides money to go toward the cost of staging on an exhibition. This money could be used for framing, studio rent, materials and other related expenses. I applied for the Scholarship to help with my upcoming 'Exposé' exhibition at the Blue Mountains Cultural Centre in February, 2015.
Blow me down... I won! The Windmill Trust Scholarship was established in memory of Penny Meagher, artist and a former director of the Macquarie Galleries.
