Artist Alan Jones has won the 2015 Mosman Art Prize, beating 104 other finalists and joining an iconic roll call of winners that started with Margaret Olley in 1947.
Jones has won $30,000 with his winning work Painting 131 (North Coogee) which was inspired by his recent move to the Sydney suburb.
Established in 1947, Mosman Art Prize is one of the oldest and most prestigious municipal art awards in Australia and with 850 entries received, this year confirmed the competition’s continuing relevance.
The prize is Mosman Art Gallery’s flagship annual exhibition – works are on display free at the Gallery – Saturday 25 July to Sunday 30 August 2015.
Visitors to the Mosman Art Prize can vote in the Viewers’ Choice Award with the winning artist awarded $1,000.
