Arts / Stephen's bronze horse wins Sculpture in the Valley
City News, May 9, 2017 - Helen Musa
IT’S fantastic news that Canberra region sculptor Stephen Harrison has won the $7000 “indoor” prize at Sculpture In The Valley over the weekend for “Black Beauty”, a bronze sculpted head in the figure of a horse.
The winner of the outdoor prize at the sculpture event, at Cedar Grove, Kangaroo Valley, which ran from May 5-7, was David Ball for his work “Orb”. Harrison was understandably elated at his win and told “CityNews” that his work had also been selected into the Sculpture by the Sea in Bondi later in the year and that this particular bronze had been picked for Sculpture by the Sea at Cottesloe, W.A. next year.
As reported in November last year, he was one of the chosen selected recipients in AMP’s $1m “Tomorrow Makers 2015” project, receiving $10,000 to produce a series of work in bronze, a medium, he told “CityNews” at the time, was “previously a bit unaffordable for me”.
