This year’s award will be judged by Janet DeBoos.
Emeritus Fellow of the Australian National University School of Art, DeBoos began her ceramics career in Sydney in the early 1970s, practising as well as teaching at several TAFE colleges over the decade.
As an artist, she has exhibited regularly since 1976, both in Australia and overseas and her work is represented in numerous public collections including the National Gallery of Australia, the Powerhouse Museum, the National Museum of China, Beijing, and the Musée Royal de Mariemont, Belgium. Having previously judged a number of ceramics competitions including the Gold Coast Ceramic Award, the 2016 Portage Ceramic Awards (New Zealand) and the South African National Ceramics Award, DeBoos brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the judging of this year’s Manningham Victorian Ceramic Art Award.
