Chris selected as Finalist in Plein Air Photo Prize + Some New Exhibition Details...




High tide at sunrise on North Avoca Beach, NSW




Hi again,


I hope you've been surviving Winter and enjoying the uber fresh mornings - especially here in Canberra, with a minus 8 recently.  I did a trip to the snow too in July and we hit -10 going through Berridale - not bad for an Australian town which is below 1000m altitude!


NSW Parliamentary Plein Air Photographic Prize

This year for the first time I entered this competition which only started last year.  It compliments the Painting Prize of the same name.  Entrants can only enter one image which must be taken somewhere in NSW, so it forces artists to be very selective.  I chose to enter High tide at sunrise on North Avoca Beach, NSW.


Weeks later, I was very happy to be contacted to be advised I had been selected as a finalist in this photo prize.  I then had this image framed for hanging in NSW Parliament House, Macquarie Street, Sydney.  The opening night for finalists and selected guests was Thursday 4 August and was hosted by The Honourable George Souris MP, NSW Minister for the Arts.


Unfortunately my image was not chosen was one of the 3 winning images, but it was still nice to see all the finalist images hung in NSW Parliament House.  You can see this show for free at NSW Parliament House during its regular opening hours for the rest of August - I recommend dropping by if you live in Sydney or its surrounding areas!  My congratulations to the 2011 winner, Peter Elfes with his image Green Desert - link to site here: done to Leanne Maslen in organising a fantastic show in a very short timeframe (about 2 weeks!).


September Exhibition: Majestic

I can now tell you the name of my exhibition in September is called "Majestic".  Without spoiling the surprise, I can also say after months of planning, I have decided on the final 13 prints for the exhibition.  And I'm excited to say I'll be exhibiting the prints with some unique mounting methods which are completely new to Chris Morrison Fine Art Landscape Photography.  I can't wait to see them hung!


Anyway, more exhibition information in the coming weeks!


Best regards,
