The Hahndorf Academy is now accepting entries for the 2012 Heysen Prize for Interpretation of Place.e
The Heysen Prize was established in 1997 to commemorate eminent South Australian artist Sir Hans Heysen (1877–1968) and his significant contribution to Australian art.
Sir Hans Heysen was one of the first non-indigenous artists to engage deeply with the Australian landscape resulting in rich depictions of the outback, atmospheric paintings of his beloved Adelaide Hills and sensitive sketches of village life.
Today, interpretations of place vary widely in approach and medium, yet still echo the same deep connections of Sir Hans Heysen. The Heysen Prize for Interpretation of Place seeks to honour and continue this valuable legacy by providing a forum for artists to express their connections to the Australian environment, urban or natural, in the style and medium of their choosing.
50 works will be chosen for the Finalist’s Exhibition and from this the following prizes will be awarded:
Prize awarded to the work judged best of the exhibition
$1,000 Non-acquisitive People’s Choice
Will be awarded to the work judged by popular choice during the duration of the exhibition as the most appealing work in the exhibition.
