Heysen Prize for Landscape Exhibition 2018

Exhibition and Shows

6 Oct 2018 to 9 Dec 2018

The Hahndorf Academy in Hahndorf’s presents The Heysen Prize for Landscape Exhibition 2018 featuring the works of 51 finalists. Since the inaugural prize in 1997 this biennial event has become a significant contemporary arts award in Australia, commemorating the nationally and internationally eminent local artist Sir Hans Heysen (1877-1968).

Famous for his paintings and drawings of the Adelaide Hills (where he lived just out of Hahndorf at a property called The Cedars) and the Flinders Ranges, Heysen was also a conservationist. He purchased neighbouring agricultural land to protect the magnificent gum trees which he loved to paint, and often depicted his concerns in paintings.

For the Heysen Prize, landscape includes all possible aspects of its natural, rural or urban forms. Emerging and established artists have responded with works depicting majestic mountain ranges in the Flinders Ranges, dry desert lands, coastal scenes, urban streetscapes and bushfire affected areas. Each landscape has a story which as been captured by artists in a diverse cross section of media including painting, drawing, ceramics, textile, photography, glass, sculpture, video and prints.

Sera Waters (SA) was announced as the winner of the $15,000 prize on October 8 2016 for her work ‘Fritz and the Rose Garden’.
