Art Piece Gallery's Inaugural 30x30 Art Prize Winners Revealed

Saturday evening revealed the (joint!) Winners of the inaugural Art Piece Gallery 30x30 Art Prize: Kat Shapiro Wood, and Vanessa Stockhard.

The $6000 prize will be divided between the two artists. As expected, a huge crowd turned out to witness the announcement. The previous day, judges Susi Muddiman OAM and artist Amanda Penrose Hart, winner of the 2017 Gallipoli art prize had considered all 230 pieces, and after much deliberation, decided to equally divide the First Prize between two artists. The exhibition of finalists will be on view at the gallery until January 22 2018.
