Abstract

The Contemporary Australian Silver and Metalwork Award and Exhibition was first launched in 1988 by Buda Historic Home & Garden to commemorate the significant contribution to Australian silversmithing by the noted colonial silversmith and Buda patriarch Ernest Leviny (1818 – 1905). The Leviny family lived at Buda for more than 118 years. More information on the talented Leviny family is available here. This award is a unique biennial exhibition which aims to encourage, foster and promote excellence and innovation in Australian metalwork as well as cultivate an understanding and appreciation of silversmithing to a wider audience.
