'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.'
