Fleurieu Food + Wine Art Prize

2016 Fleurieu Food and Wine Art Prize


FRAN CALLEN - Tabletop 1

Showing at the McLaren Vale and Fleurieu Visitor Information Centre

In Tabletop 1,  Fran explores the experiences of new-motherhood, domesticity and the struggle to find the ultimate art/mother balance. In making the work an un-stretched canvas was draped tablecloth-like on the kitchen table and objects were sketched as they landed on the table during daily routines of family life such as cooking, eating, filling milk bottles and packing lunches with wine, coffee, tea, salt all becoming part of the media.

Fleurieu Food + Wine Art Prize June 4 to July 29, 2016

The 2016 Fleurieu Food + Wine Art Prize has being reintroduced and is being run in conjunction with the richest landscape art prize in the world –The Fleurieu Art Prize.

The 2016 Food + Wine Art Prize is a Festival Community Program celebrating the art, food and wine of the Fleurieu Peninsula region with a $10,000, non-acquisitive prize for paintings with a food and wine theme.

The Food + Wine Art Prize will be anchored in McLaren Vale and will continue the Fleurieu Art Prize’s close association with the Fleurieu Peninsula.

The judges for the Food + Wine Art Prize are highly respected in the art world and include artist and Associate Professor Lecturer, Drawing at Adelaide Central School of Art, Chris Orchard, Director of Anne & Gordon Samstag Museum of Art, Erica Green and Peter Walker of Peter Walker Fine Art Gallery.

The founders of the Fleurieu Art Biennale, David Dridan, Greg Trott and Tony Parkinson had the vision to bring together a celebration of art, food and wine and in so doing promote the region they loved and make this a highly recognized place of interest for both global and local visitors. The new Fleurieu Food + Wine Art Prize gives us the opportunity to continue this vision.



The finalists will be hung on 9 venues across McLaren Vale. The finalists have been tentatively allocated to the following gallery spaces.
