15 Artists is an annual acquisitive award developed to enhance the Moreton Bay Regional Council Art Collection and exhibition program. The exhibition is curated to highlight new works by a selected group of emerging, mid-career and established artists with a focus on culture, identity, spirit and sense of place. This year, Tracy Cooper-Lavery, Rockhampton Art Gallery Director will award the acquisitive prize of $8,000.

In 2015, the selected artists are Keith Burt, Stevie Fieldsend, Shaun Gladwell, Judith Kentish, Sherrie Knipe, Lindy Lee, Euan MacLeod, Deb Mansfield, Deb Mostert, Laurie Nilsen, Mike Riddle, Kristin Tennyson, Kawita Vatanajyankur and Guan Wei.

In 1997, Redcliffe Art Society’s Annual Competition was re-envisaged as 15 Artists and has been held at Redcliffe City Art Gallery since 2001. To honour the connection between these two competitions one place is reserved each year for the winner of Redcliffe Art Society’s annual member’s exhibition. In 2015, Gwynneth Boyce was awarded this place.

Artists are selected to reflect the diversity of medium and conceptual themes in contemporary art practice and represent artists at varying points in their careers. Ultimately the intent is to create an exciting contemporary exhibition out of which a winning work will be chosen and will have a valued place in the Moreton Bay Regional Council Art Collection.
