Sight For All "RED"- One Day For Sight 2016
"Red" is now hanging at the Adelaide Festival Centre through to January 22nd 2017. We all want to congratulate all of those selected for the show, and the ultimate winner of Optos, a Nikon company's first prize of $5000, Tony Kearney and his image 5th floor (pictured above).
The exhibition is a curated set from all of the entries we received for this year's challenge. The judges, Lisa Slade – Deputy Director Art Gallery South Australia, Narelle Autio – acclaimed Australian photographer, and Hugo Michell – Art dealer, at the Hugo Michell Gallery did a great job, the 33 hanging are spectacular.
