Australia Council Visual Arts Award – Susan Cohn Q&A

What does winning the award mean to you?
I am thrilled and honoured! Artists work hard to get recognition for their work. This award coming from the Australia Council for the Arts is a powerful acknowledgement that goes beyond the support of friends and colleagues, my gallery director, and the range of public galleries and private collectors that collect my work and help keep me going.
