The Australian: NT artist wins major prize

Posted by Aboriginal Art Directory | 14.09.06

Michael Nelson Jagamara has won the 2006 $20,000 Tattersall's Landscape Art Prize.

The Tattersall's Landscape Art Prize began in 1990 with 31 artists invited to enter. This year 81 artists were invited with the competition judged by University of Queensland art historian Dr Rex Butler, Gold Coast Arts Centre curator John Walsh, and Jenny Sages, the 2005 winner of Australia's richest landscape art prize, the Wynne prize.

Michael Nelson Jagamara will have his work permanently hung in the exclusive Tattersall's men's club in Brisbane's Queen Street Mall along with previous award-winners including David Middlebrook, Kenneth Jack, Gordon Shepherdson and Elisabeth Cummings.
