The Hahndorf Academy Adelaide Hills Landscape Arts Prize 2017

The Hahndorf Academy is proud to present a new arts prize for 2017 to celebrate our region. We invite artists to engage with and to interpret their experience of the Adelaide Hills and the diversity of the landscape, the natural, rural or urban and the ever-changing seasons.

The Adelaide Hills Arts Prize 2017 encourages artists to express their connection with the Hills in ways that highlight and capture their awareness of the dynamic environment and the landscape with works in any medium.

The arts prize is open to artists who reside in South Australia. Two-dimensional and three-dimensional works in any medium are accepted with works created from 2016 to 2017 and with works available for sale. All entries will be presented to a panel of judges and The Hahndorf Academy will host a finalist exhibition from 4 November – 10 December 2017.

Naomi Fallon is the Director of the Walkway Gallery, Arts & Cultural Development Facilitator with the Tatiara District Council and Country Arts SA.

 Naomi has been based in Bordertown since 2010 where she is largely responsible for facilitating and developing projects and initiatives which promote the arts and culture in the area. In late 2011 she took over the management of the Walkway Gallery with a particular focus on community engagement, exhibition programming, collection and acquisition management. After steadily building support for the gallery she instigated a shift in programming by approaching the Art Gallery of South Australia to borrow contemporary works from their collection. The resulting show featured the work of Ben Quilty and saw a significant increase in visitors to the Walkway Gallery and encouraged a greater understanding and curiosity of contemporary art in the local community.

Naomi continues to collaborate with the Art Gallery of South Australia and will present the work of significant Australian contemporary artists Del Kathryn Barton (2017), Nell (2018) and Robyn Stacey (2018) alongside an exhibition and public program of local and interstate artists and curators.

 Naomi is currently the Chair of the Regional Galleries Association of South Australia.
