Wolfhagen wins the Lloyd Rees Art Prize
Congratulations to Philip Wolfhagen for winning the 2017 Lloyd Rees Art Prize. The prize is a biannual independently judged, acquisitive prize that recognises Rees' legacy and contribution to Australian landscape painting. The prize is awarded to the best painting to demonstrate light in the landscape. Wolfhagen's winning work titled transitory light depicts a twilight scene of the view overlooking Norfolk Plains in northern Tasmania. This year the prize was judged by Janet Holmes a Court AC.
