Fellowship:Excellence in visual arts Availability: Annually Region: Offered Nationally
Robert Prickett had a long association with the Trust which commenced in 1967 when he was awarded a Churchill Fellowship to study public health aspects of water supply, sewerage treatment and re-use in tropical and arid regions. In 1993 the first Bob and June Prickett Churchill Fellowship was awarded.
Bob was not only a civil engineer but a self-taught artist who used the tools of his former trade to sculpt marble into exquisite shapes and figurines. He created hundreds of ethereal forms from his stockpile of Chillagoe marble – sculptures which now sit in private collections around the world. It is in his name that we now offer a Fellowship in visual arts to honour Bob's passion for creativity.
Bob was a generous sponsor offering a Fellowship every year which now continues in perpetuity following a generous bequest to the Trust following his death.
