Celebrating Art and Community: The Fleurieu Biennale Art Prize

The Fleurieu Biennale Art Prize stands as a testament to the vibrant creativity and artistic expression flourishing within its community. This year, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to the talented artists who poured their souls into crafting stunning artworks, infusing the competition with beauty and inspiration.

A special acknowledgment goes to Anna and the entire team at the Fleurieu Arthouse, whose dedication and hard work, alongside the Prize Committee, judges, and sponsors, brought this spectacular event to life. Their collective efforts ensured the success of the exhibition, offering a platform for artists to showcase their exceptional talents.

We extend our sincere appreciation to Councillor Dan Platten for delivering a brilliant speech, adding depth and insight to the occasion. His words resonated with the audience, underscoring the significance of art in shaping our perceptions of the world.

Furthermore, we express our gratitude to Naomi and Maureen for their warm welcome to country, enriching our experience with a profound connection to the land. Their contribution aligned perfectly with the theme of the prize, allowing us to immerse ourselves in 'a sense of place' and fostering a deeper appreciation for our surroundings.

The evening was a testament to the power of art to evoke emotion and provoke thought. As the exhibition unfolds, we invite everyone to visit the Arthouse and witness the outstanding pieces on display. From the Art Gallery of South Australia to the Jam Factory, Hardys Wines, McLaren Vale, and Fleurieu Coast, and the City of Onkaparinga, each partner played a vital role in making this event a resounding success.

In conclusion, the Fleurieu Biennale Art Prize not only celebrates artistic excellence but also fosters a sense of community and belonging. It serves as a reminder of the profound impact art can have in enriching our lives and connecting us to our shared humanity. Let us continue to support and nurture the arts, ensuring they remain a vibrant and integral part of our cultural landscape.
