The Far South Coast Living Artist Scholarship was set up to provide ongoing support for talented artists from the Far South Coast.

The major objective of Living Artist is to provide opportunities for Far South Coast visual artists to develop excellence in their practices by providing mentorship, education, and financial and marketing support in a bid to retain them in the region whilst they work towards supporting themselves from their own art practice.

Approximately $30,000 is raised in the local community every two years with the generous assistance of other artists, donors, sponsors and volunteers


















The current Far South Coast Living Artist is Matthew Jones.

An exhibition of his recent work at the Bega Valley Regional Gallery.
called 'Portrait -  New work by Matthew Jones', was officially opened on Friday 9th March 2012.

Guest Speaker was Andrew Sayers AM, Director of the National Museum of Australia
