2017 Glover Prize

Sunday, 04 December 2016 | 12:43am

The Glover Prize has become one of Australia’s most significant awards for landscape painting. It is presented annually for the work by an artist from anywhere in the world judged the best contemporary landscape painting of Tasmania.

The winner receives $40,000 and a bronze maquette of colonial artist John Glover, whose legacy is celebrated though the Prize. Landscape painting is defined in its broadest sense.

The aim is to stimulate conversations about the meaning and possibilities expressed in the words landscape, painting and Tasmania.

The exhibition is held over the annual March long-weekend in the historic Falls Park pavilion in Evandale, the heritage village not far from Patterdale that Glover and his family visited often.
