The Bega Art Prize 2010…

Last night the Bega Art Prize 2010 went off, with the first prize of $5000 (non-acquisitive) being snaffled by Raymond Kropf for his luscious abstract, Ancient Sunlight. Second prize went to Stan Squire for his whimsical wave machine, Out of my head

…while Bernard O’Grady took out the Mailroom Prize with his vertiginous When I was the Sky itself.

The strength of the field was attested by the length of  judge Deborah Clark’s list of Highly Commended; Margaret Brown, Tom Bosman, Kay Jensen, Brigitte Enders, Gillian Falloon, Bernard O’Grady, Veronica O’Leary and Tanja Riese.

There’s plenty to love…

The show is up until the end of January, so anybody planning some holiday fun on the Far South Coast should swing by the BVRG for their local culture fix.

More happy snaps here.
