Marcus Williams and Susan Jowsey have won the annual 2009 Wallace Art Awards with their photographic dyptich: The Correction.
The Award includes a six month residency at the International Studio and Curatorial Programme in New York, plus a bronze trophy by Terry Stringer.
I recently met Marcus when he came down to mark an MFA exam with me at the School of Art, Otago Polytechic and locals may know him as half of the curatorial partnership that developed the I Was Russia exhibition that is currently on show at the Dunedin Public Art Gallery.
He is an intelligent and articulate person, and I would just love to say Congratulations! Great Work!
