Monsieur Yves Hernot continues to be a huge supporter of TAP Art Gallery and is sponsoring our book project by generously donating $500.
On Saturday 27th February 2021, in true Mardi Gras tradition the annual “OUTLOUD‘ Exhibition took place at TAP Art Gallery, opened by Yves who also, generously, financed the First and Second prizewinners by awarding his Prix Yves Hernot of $500 to First Place winner, Kit Ball for his striking oil portrait “Untitled” and $200 to the Runner-up, Martin Davidson for his amazing night photograph of “The Oxford Hotel”.
Yves then wrote another article for the international newspaper Le Courrier Australien on the event. In this he stresses the hardships and struggles that artists are facing during the pandemic and how he sees the importance of community events such as this and how TAP Gallery is helping these struggling artists by holding them, despite struggling to survive itself.
