Geelong Contemporary Art Prize

'In the hush of morning mist - Dove Lake (Cradle Mountain)', © 2012. Nicola Moss. Acrylic, pigmented ink and graphite on canvas, 90 x 90cm.

'In the hush of morning mist - Dove Lake (Cradle Mountain)' has been shortlisted for the Geelong Contemporary Art Prize 2012 (formerly known as the Fletcher Jones art prize).
The Geelong Contemporary Art Prize is an acquisitive painting prize conducted by Geelong Gallery on a biennial basis. The exhibition of finalist's work will be on show from 15th September to 18th November 2012. This year the event is generously sponsored by the Dimmick Charitable Trust. I am thrilled to be participating in the exhibition.

This painting is from a series I have been working on for the past few months, featuring my experiences of the World Heritage listed environment of Cradle Mountain National Park (You can see earlier posts of our walks here, here and here). The completed paintings will be presented in my upcoming solo exhibition - 'Breathing in Mountains',  at Salt Contemporary Art, Queenscliff, opening on 23rd November.
