Art enthusiast. Loves painting, bushwalking and travels. Writing what I love sparks my passion. Sydney, Australia.
Celebrating its 67th year, Mosman Art Prize is one of the prestigious art prizes in Australia. As this is one of my much anticipated art events, I was excited to attend the opening night on the 31st July to hear the announcement of the winner of the Mosman Art Prize 2014.
The winner is Michael Muir and his winning work titled 'Past the stacks'. In his speech, he mentioned that his artwork had only been hung twice over the last decade. I felt like that his accomplishment, similar to most artists, is a true testament to his perseverance and commitment to his art practice.
The exhibition of winners' and finalists' artworks continues at the Mosman Art Gallery until September 7.
