 $8,000 Tasmanian Art AwardWinner

Penny Mason

‘Rheban Beach'

Judges’ comments:

A work the judges felt showed originality, elegance and a subtlety of vision all brought together with a totally professional technique. We felt these attributes put the work ahead of all the other contenders.

 

$1,000 Watercolour Prize

Paul Becker

‘Errol's Vision and the Inaction of Others'

Judges’ comments:

An elegant and eloquent use of the medium - mixing both landscape and architecture as subject matter. 

$1,000 Acrylic Prize

Anita Simmelhag

‘Still Waters, Flinders Island'


Judges Comments:

A very interesting unconventional view of a seascape. A rewarding work to contemplate and enjoy.

 

$1,000 Pastel Prize

Helen Munro

‘Crevice'

Judges’ comments:

A macro view of rocks with the plants struggling to grow out of the crevasse's, ably illustrated by the use of pastel.

 

$1,000 Mixed Media Prize

Gina

'Relics'

Judges’ comments:

A set of quirky meticulous, somewhat disturbing collection of found objects arranged in a way that tells many an unknown story.

$1,000 Oils Prize

Matthew Dames

'Fire on Mt Arrowsmith'

Judges’ comments:

Fire on Mt Arrowsmith is a subtle evocation of a burning landscape, both the colour palette and texture of this work convey the hidden power and menace associated with bush fires.

$1,000 Sculpture Prize

Robert Boldkald

'Imposition'

Judges’ comments:

An intensely complicated structure of the human form, conveying a sense of both humor and energy. A technically and aesthetically competent sculpture.

$1,500 Judges Commendation, Launceston Art Society Member Award

Margaret Coombes

'Out of the Mist'

Judges’ comments:

A delicate, sensitive depiction on a small scale of a very large subject.
