2020 ADFAS Emerging Artist Residency & Solo Exhibition Award


Celebrating a Third Year of Partnership between Eramboo and ADFAS:

Emerging Artist Residency and Solo Exhibition Award 2020

Applications Now Closed



Eramboo is excited to be celebrating a Third Year of partnership with the Ku-ring-gai branch of the Australian Decorative and Fine Arts Society (known as ADFAS).


ADFAS has sponsored an exciting opportunity for a local emerging artist 35 years or younger that includes a one month artist-in-residence studio space and solo exhibition at Eramboo.


ADFAS has generously funded an artist’s materials fee of $300, four weeks studio rental (beginning mid October 2020), gallery hire and administration and mentoring by Eramboo. The residency will be followed by a solo exhibition in December or January after completion of their month long studio residency. Eramboo will provide access, advice and promotion of the emerging artist as well as installation assistance.


ADFAS Societies are run by volunteers and aim to foster interest in the decorative and fine arts, cultivate their application and study and encourage the preservation of our cultural and artistic heritage.  ‘One of our community activities in this mission is to encourage youth participation in the Arts and each year we fund projects to this end’.
