2010 – Broken Hill Regional Art Gallery ‘2010 Outback Art Prize’, July 23-September 5

I won the second prize non-acquisitive ($2,500) for my work Fantastic Garden Primordial polymergravure print. The judge of the prize Kathleen von Witt, said at her speech on the opening night “…but I award the non-acquisitive prize to Dianne Longley, for her ‘Fantastic Garden Primordial’. This is a wonderful example of printmaking technique – the surrealistic use of colours give a sense of the otherworldly, while the succulents, aloe, cacti and mesembryanthemums are striking examples of old-school dry landscape gardening – perfect for the outback.”
