Alex Seton is a shortlisted artist in the Fleurieu Art Prize for Landscape at the Samstag Museum of Art, Adelaide with his work 'The Best of All Possible Worlds' 2016.
In 2016 the Fleurieu Art Prize – the richest landscape art prize in the world – will relocate from its home on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula of South Australia to the Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art in Adelaide, where it will be presented to city audiences for the first time.
Landscape as a subject for art continues to capture the imagination not only of the wider community, but also increasingly of leading artists wanting to express a connection with place, and who recognise that landscape holds a compelling power for our contemporary culture.
The judging panel: Nigel Hurst, Director, Saatchi Gallery London; Suhanya Raffel, Deputy Director and Director of Collections, Art Gallery of New South Wales; and Erica Green, Director, Samstag Museum of Art.
The 2016 winner of the Landscape Prize will be announced on opening night on Thursday 2 June 2016 and the exhibition will continue from 3 June – 29 July 2016.
