REAL OR SURREAL?

 

 

'I would love to thank every SA based artist for entering the Emma Hack Art Prize this year. We had had a total of 195 entries and I was so proud viewing each of them, of what talent we have here in SA.

 

The works created are emotionally evocative works, fun twists on the 'Real or Surreal?' theme and well thought-out, truly beautiful works. I congratulate the 34 finalists of 2017.

 

I do hope you all join to celebrate and support those that made it through at the launch on Thursday, 23rd February, 6pm at Burnside Village.'


Emma

Meet the Judges


'Every year I change my co-judges to keep the Emma Hack Art Prize results varied, interesting and fair.'

 

 

 

 

As with every year of the Emma Hack Art Prize, 15% of the sale of all Finalist artworks will be donated to a relevant charity to the theme chosen.


'This year I have chose 'Mental Illness Fellowship South Australia (Mifsa)’.  1 in 5 people will be affected by mental health in their lifetime, I feel its important to support those experiencing mental health issues and those that care for them.  The theme 'Real or Surreal?' lends itself to this theme as the reality of ones thoughts may be surreal to another.  Its important to raise awareness and acceptance of mental illness that affects so many.'
