Fleurieu Art Prize

 

 

The Fleurieu Biennale began in 1998 and has since grown into an event that has won recognition both nationally and internationally. The Fleurieu Art Prize 2011 was the seventh prize awarded since its inception offering a total prize pool of $90,000.

The prize and festival event is a bienniale. The next Fleurieu Art Prize will be held in November 2013 (dates to be announced) Call for entries will be made in early 2013. 

With the help of the SA Premier’s Art Partnership Fund, Fox Creek hosted the Fleurieu Water Prize in our barrel shed in 2008.

As the sponsorship was acquisitioned we were fortunate enough to get to keep the winning work called ‘So Much Water So Close to Home’ by Shonah Trescott.  Shonah, who is from New South Wales, has painted mini landscapes with oil on 100 sealed postcards.  She is only 26 years of age and she has already won more awards than we can list here and has traveled extensively on scholarships. Since 2006, she has exhibited regularly in both group and solo exhibitions in Sydney, Leipzig, Berlin, Mallorca, Ireland and Bosnia. The three judges of The Water Prize were unanimous and we are thankful as we get such pleasure from Shonah’s work every day.
