Adriane Strampp is a finalist in the Fisher’s Ghost Art Award with Dust Storm 2019.
The Fisher’s Ghost Art Award is an annual art prize inviting artists to submit works in a variety of artistic categories and mediums. Now in its 58th year, with a total of $36,000 in prize money to be won the Open section is acquisitive to the Campbelltown City Council collection and is valued at $25,000.
Established in 1947, the Mosman Art Prize is Australia’s oldest and most prestigious local government art award, and worth $50,000. It was founded by the artist, architect and arts advocate, Alderman Allan Gamble, at a time when only a small handful of art prizes were in existence in Australia and the community had very little support and few opportunities to exhibit their work.
As an acquisitive art award for painting, the winning artworks collected form a splendid collection of modern and contemporary Australian art, reflecting all the developments in Australian art practice since 1947.
The 2020 Mosman Art Prize judge is Alexie Glass-Kantor, Executive Director of Artspace, Sydney.
The Muswellbrook Art Prize began in 1958 as the Festival of the Valley Art Prize with the winning painting Death of Voss by Tom Gleghorn becoming the inaugural work in what has grown to become an excellent collection of modern and contemporary Australian painting, works on paper and ceramics from the Post War period of the 20th Century and now the first two decades of the 21st Century. The Muswellbrook Shire Art Collection was created as a direct result of this ongoing acquisitive art competition.
Adriane Strampp is a finalist in the Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize. Established in 2015, this prize is a celebration of contemporary Australian painting. The finalist exhibition brings together a broad range of artists, both established and lesser known, whose varied approaches to the painted medium conveys the breadth and diversity of painting in Australia today.
The annual prize is an important opportunity for Bayside City Council to add exceptional works of art to its collection and to promote art and artists as a valuable part of the Bayside community. The three categories of the prize are judged by a panel of industry experts.
This year’s judges are Jane Devery, Curator, Contemporary Art, National Gallery of Victoria, and Anthony Fitzpatrick, Curator, TarraWarra Museum of Art, who will join Joanna Bosse, Curator, Bayside Gallery on the 2019 judging panel.

Adriane Strampp is a finalist in The John Leslie Art Prize, one of Australia’s most prestigious and valuable prizes for contemporary landscape painting. With a first prize of $20,000 (non-acquisitive) the Prize consistently attracts the highest calibre of artists working in Australia. An additional prize of $1,000 will be given to the best Gippsland work. The Prize is made possible through the generous ongoing support of the Gallery’s Patron, John Leslie OBE.
Adriane Strampp is returning again this year to Art Central with Hill Smith Gallery for Hong Kong Art Week, along with gallery artists Melinda Schawel and Yanni Floros. Art Central will feature over 100 leading international galleries, 75% of which hail from the Asia Pacific.The Fair’s extensive gallery line-up will showcase striking works from across the globe, illustrating the diversity and prodigious talent of artists within today’s contemporary art market.
Adriane Strampp explores the theme of the Romantic landscape, the intangible and the evocative, the search for a sense of place, and the desire for connection, a reflection of her own peripatetic background. Interest is not in the mimetic representation of landscape, but rather the suggestion and presence of the viewer observing, present yet separated from that which he sees. It traces both the literal and the emotional journey of a landscape remembered, the search for familarity, and explores triggers that help us connect the past with the present.
This Wild Song is holding a silent auction to help support an exhibition of contemporary artworks by 23 Australian female artists in Singapore at the Australian High Commission. The exhibition is timed to coincide with International Women’s Day in March of 2018. Over 40 Australian female artists have donated works to help support this project, and works are currently on view at Gallerysmith and bidding online ends at 3 pm Saturday 3rd Feb.
This Wild Song (TWS) is a series of portraits and interviews with Australian women visual artists who have a unique voice.
The theme of the portraits is for the artist to become a part of their work. The photographs also hold the intention of creating an honest and true depiction of who the artist is as a person. Every portrait has a specific concept created for the artist, and significance is placed on all elements within the photograph in relation to the artist and their practice.
TWS celebrates the strong female leaders in the arts community. Although the artists being featured are from varying backgrounds, use a diverse range of mediums, and at different stages of their arts career; they are unified by their unique voices and distinct style. The inclusion of so many artistic mediums in TWS offers a broad synopsis of contemporary Australian art.
