GLEN Innes artist and arts administrator Stephanie Brummell has won a $10,000 scholarship in the NSW Government Young Regional Artists Scholarship program, Member for Northern Tablelands Adam Marshall announced today.

Mr Marshall was in Glen Innes recently to personally congratulate Ms Brummell on her selection and said he was delighted to see such a talented young local artist and administrator win the scholarship.

“Steph is a Communications Officer for Arts North West and has recently become involved with textile conservation at the Land of the Beardies History House Museum,” Mr Marshall said.

“She applied for this scholarship in order to further development her skills in contemporary textile arts practice.

“I am proud of Steph and the work’s she’s doing in our region and pleased the government has created a program exclusively for country youth to develop their careers and connect with arts organisations and training opportunities.

“We are investing in the next generation of talent to grow their skills and expand their knowledge to take back to regional communities.”

Mr Marshall said 2015 scholarship recipient Ashley Hansell, of Dundee, was a wonderful example of the outstanding Scholarship alumni.

“Ashley has used her scholarship to focus on the professional design development program to expand a fashion label,” he said.

Ashley acknowledges the grant “has really changed her life” and seen her fashion label SPUNKIT blossom due to this opportunity.”
