A.M.E Bale Travelling Scholarship and Art Prize 2016

I went to Glen Eira City Council Gallery this morning. Traffic was really bad, and it took me an hour. 

Ben Winspear is this year's winner with prize money of $50,000. Congratulations Ben!
I know him a bit, actually have been to his studio to visit and paint. Great artist. 
He's just recently been awarded Artists of the Year at Victorian Artists Society. 
I'm very happy that his work have been recognised. He deserves it. 

Almost all the works are of highest quality. I reckon that this is one of the best exhibitions I've been to this year. 

I've never heard of this artist before, but I was very taken by the quality and aesthetic of the works by Sheri Elphick. I will do some research on her. 

Now, off to Greg's studio.
