Mosman Art Prize
Mosman Art Gallery’s leading annual exhibition, the Mosman Art Prize is now on show, including Spring, 2021, the winning work by Fremantle-based artist Jacobus Capone.
Capone was presented with the first prize $50,000 for Spring 2021, by 2022 judge Rhana Devenport ONZM, Director of the Art Gallery of South Australia, at the exhibition opening on Friday 26 August. The unique painting features fallen golden wattle and seawater, creating an ethereal pigment wash.
A total of $61,000 in prize money was awarded to artists across four categories with other prizes including the Margaret Olley Commendation Award ($6,000) given to Dianne Tchumut (Mulingi, NT), the Allan Gamble Award (for built environment) valued at $3,000 won by Eliza Gosse (Sydney), and the Guy Warren Emerging Artists' Award, $2,000 presented to Sebastian Galloway (Hobart).
The 2022 Mosman Art Prize attracted over 840 entries from across Australia with 91 paintings selected for the finalist exhibition.
