Science + Art @ at the South Australia Museum
Congratulations to all applicants who entered this year’s Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize and for providing a challenging and exciting opportunity for the judging panel to select works for the prizes and also for the exhibition. The world of natural science is truly amazing, as shown through the works of all the contributing artists and confirmed by the diversity of the artworks entered. The intellect and intensity of Natural Science as an influential content is counterbalanced with works that resonate of personal and passionate conviction for natural science, close up, in our lives and of the wider planet.
If you have a chance to visit the Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize 2016 at the South Australia Museum it will certainly be worthwhile.
