Peter Larsen with his award-winning artwork.

The votes are in and the winner of the People’s Choice for the Calleen Art Award 2019 is Cowra-based artist Peter Larsen for his dramatic painting Hopeless Despair, 2019, watercolour, 120cm x 97cm. “This work arises from drought and its emotional toll on farmers…. we’re all affected by it and that’s why I wanted to do that painting” Peter Larsen said.

The Calleen Art Award 2019 exhibition consisted of an amazing range of 53 outstanding paintings selected from 300 entries received by the Gallery from around Australia.

Congratulations to Peter Larsen who receives $1,000 courtesy of the Friends of the Gallery.
