A RICH PALETTE
The Fleurieu Art Prize culminates in a rich combination of fine art, some of the world's best wine, fine food and beautiful vistas of McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Peninsula as the finalists of the Fleurieu Art Prize are exhibited in wineries and galleries throughout this exquisite region in November 2013.
The $60,000 Fleurieu Landscape Prize is for painting of any landscape from around the world or other with the finalists exhibitions as the centrepiece of a month long celebration of the arts. The prize attracts artists nationally and internationally and the prize exhibitions are underpinned by a quality Festival Community Program of events and exhibitions.
