2012 Heysen Prize for Interpretation of Place

The Hahndorf Academy is now accepting entries for the 2012 Heysen Prize for Interpretation of Place.

The Heysen Prize was established in 1997 to commemorate eminent South Australian artist Sir Hans Heysen (1877–1968) and his significant contribution to Australian art.

Today, interpretations of place vary widely in approach and medium, yet still echo the same deep connections of Sir Hans Heysen. The Heysen Prize for Interpretation of Place seeks to honour and continue this valuable legacy by providing a forum for artists to express their connections to the Australian environment, urban or natural, in the style and medium of their choosing.
