2016 FLEURIEU ART PRIZE
AIDA TOMESCU included in the 2016 FLEURIEU ART PRIZE
ANNE & GORDON SAMSTAG MUSEUM OF ART
University of South Australia, Adelaide
Friday 3 June – Friday 29 July
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.
