The sponsorship will include the establishment of the inaugural Hindmarsh Prize to recognise, celebrate and promote excellence and appreciation of the world-class artists working in glass who live and practice in the ACT and surrounding region.

Hindmarsh CEO Rowan Hindmarsh said the sponsorship furthers the company’s commitment to supporting the arts.

“Throughout its 30 year history Hindmarsh has been a passionate supporter of the arts, sharing a passion to support the communities we work within. This sponsorship aligns closely with Hindmarsh as a business,” Mr Hindmarsh said.

Arts-watchers will be interested to know that the Glassworks has been eager to present glass in the historic Fitters Workshop next door, and shortlisted works for the Hindmarsh Prize 2016 will be exhibited there from June 17 next year in association with next year’s Canberra Glassworks Winter Glass Market.

“The Hindmarsh Prize is a wonderful opportunity to promote the work of ACT and region artists working in glass,” Nola Anderson, Chair, Canberra Glassworks says.

“John Hindmarsh has been an active supporter of the artistic community and the Canberra Glassworks over many years and we look forward very much to working with Hindmarsh on this new venture,” she added.
