Congratulations to all the winners in this year's Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize, especially our own Helen Wright who took out 2nd place in the Works on Paper category with her wood cut print titled The Exquisite Corpse of Seaweed Man .
The Waterhouse Natural History Art Prize is a prestigious art award
that celebrates our intricate and complex global biodiversity and
encourages excellence in natural history art within Australia and around
The prize was established by the South Australian Museum in 2002 to
honour its first curator, the eminent zoologist Frederick George
Waterhouse. Now in its tenth year, the Waterhouse is Australia’s richest
prize for natural history art. It has proudly contributed over one
million dollars to the arts community since its inception.
The enduring popularity of the prize is testament to the unique
opportunity it gives artists to interpret the beauty and fragility of
our natural world.
The exhibition of finalists' artworks are on display at the South Australian Museum until 9 September 2012.
