Congratulations Sobey Art Award Longlist Artists

Posted on March 31st, 2020
by Nocturne

The Sobey Art Award 2020 Long List was announced last week and we couldn’t be more excited!

This year, the 25 winners will be awarded $25,000 each. We are so proud of the many Nocturne connections in this year's longlist and we wanted to share some work by each artist present at past festivals!

This year's Atlantic artists include:

  • Jordan Bennett
  • Melanie Colosimo
  • Graeme Patterson
  • Lou Sheppard
  • D’Arcy Wilson
“Distinctly dynamic, resonant, and compelling, these artists’ works bring to view meaningful approaches to their materials and gestures. They create new relationships and vocabularies that value specificity with regard to personal, geographic, cultural, or socio-historical perspectives, yet open themselves onto broader forms of connection.”
