Carla Hananiah – Winner of the 2012 Mosman Art Prize Viewer’s Choice Award

Established in 1947, the Mosman Art Prize is one of the oldest and most prestigious, local government art awards in Australia.

On winning the 2012 Viewer’s Choice Award, Carla said:

It was a lovely surprise to find out that my painting had won the Mosman Art Society Viewers Choice Prize. I had already felt honored by having my work included in the finalist exhibition and so to find out so many people had responded so positively to my art work was overwhelming. It is what every artist hopes for – that their work will speak to, attract, engage and strike a chord with other’s eyes, minds and souls. Knowing that my work resonates with others has made me feel very happy. As an emerging artist, to be selected as a finalist for such a prestigious art prize is an extremely affirming and exciting experience It was also a pleasure to meet 2011 winner Kerrie Lester on the day the award was announced.

Carla Hananiah’s exhibition In the Cool of the Day opens at Edwina Corlette Gallery on Tuesday 25 September 2012.
