Bayside Gallery Curator, Joanna Bosse, speaking on behalf of the judging panel, said the Dani McKenzie’s work captivated the judges with its cinematic quality and sense of unfolding narrative.
Established in 2015, the Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize is a celebration of contemporary Australian painting. The finalist exhibition brings together a broad range of artists, both established and lesser known, whose varied approaches to the painted medium conveys the breadth and diversity of painting in Australia today.
The annual prize is an important opportunity for Bayside City Council to add exceptional works of art to its collection and to promote art and artists as a valuable part of the Bayside community. The three categories of the prize are judged by a panel of industry experts.
This year Bayside Gallery welcomes Jane Devery, Curator, Contemporary Art, National Gallery of Victoria, and Anthony Fitzpatrick, Curator, TarraWarra Museum of Art, who will join Joanna Bosse, Curator, Bayside Gallery on the 2019 judging panel.
