The Barr Smith Library offers a prize to one of the students from University Senior College for an art work from their annual Year 12 Art Exhibition. The Exhibition was recently on display in the Library entrance foyer.
Mirna Heruc, of University of Adelaide Arts and Heritage, and University Librarian, Ray Choate, selected the winner for 2009, a work by Shaun Mercier depicting two dancers.
Both judges consider the prize-winning work to have a special dynamism and sense of movement and drama.
The Barr Smith Library has acquired Shaun’s painting, and will display it as soon as possible.
