Trevor Lyons Award
Trevor Lyons was a QCA student and staff member in the late 1980s. Not only was he an exceptional artist but also a person with a great passion for printmaking. A mature age student, Trevor had previously served as a Lieutenant in the Vietnam War and made an extraordinary road trip with his family in a converted bus around Australia making and selling his artwork. Unfortunately, in his last year of study at QCA he was diagnosed with cancer and sadly died not long after.
Trevor's family and the QCA printmaking staff established the Trevor Lyons Memorial Award after his untimely death, and each year since we have acknowledged this exceptional individual by awarding a prize to the student who has demonstrated that same determination and passion in their printmaking studies.
The Trevor Lyons Award, presented to an outstanding student from the graduating class of 2012 that has contributed to work in the Print Media field is Vanessa Cox.
This award is a print from the collection.
The 2011 recipient of the Trevor Lyons Award was Kim Anderson.
The Iain Turnbull Memorial Bursary
An annual award in memory of Iain Andrew Turnbull (1965-2009) for presentation to a student of the Queensland College of Art judged by the selection panel to have displayed during that year the most outstanding progress and potential for future development in printmaking.
The first award was made in 2011. This award is funded by Iain's family and partner Jennifer Lowrey.
Born in Sydney, Iain Turnbull came to Brisbane aged 5 and, apart from six years in Europe in the late seventies, he spent the rest of his life here until his untimely death from cancer in 2009 at the age of 43. From an early age he showed quiet determination and a strong individualism. He opted out of formal education in the United Kingdom at the age of 12 during the family’s travels in Europe from 1976 to 1981. But these years—particularly more than a year in Spain—were tremendously important to the stimulation of his overall development. He acquired an impressive general knowledge through a wide ranging interest in books, language, history, music, cinema, theatre, the natural world and, of course, his deep love of art.
Following the family’s return to Brisbane in late 1981 and some years at the Brisbane Institute of Art—first under an informal scholarship and later with studio access to work independently at printmaking—he returned to formal education at age 35, enjoying a distinguished academic record at the Queensland College of Art before graduating in 2004 with a First Class Honours Degree in Fine Arts.
Although not known to a wide public audience, his art was highly regarded by his fellow artists and Queensland College of Art colleagues; never flamboyant or self-assertive, it invites the viewer to enter, and be absorbed in, a world of quiet introspection. Disease tragically cut short Iain’s own artistic career and this Prize is the result of a desire on the part of Iain’s family and his former partner Jennifer Lowrey to perpetuate his memory in a way that will give future printmaking students at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University substantial assistance in furthering their own artistic practice. It is the hope of his parents that this Memorial Fund will continue to attract funding from art lovers to support the ‘printmaking talent of tomorrow’.
