THE swirling dust storm on Friday night did not keep away the crowd at the 2019 Scone Art Prize.
The Prize was opened by Cr Sue Abbott, who has been a strong supporter of the Prize since she and her husband, Dr Richard Abbott, moved to town in the 1980’s.
See gallery below.
Newcastle artist Eugenia Dunlevie won the Bobbie Paradice Prize this year, with many local artists catching the eye of the judge.
“There is an extraordinary amount of talent locally which really stood out to me,” said Ms Skene.
“The works in this exhibition were extremely interesting, very good a very high quality of work and it was very difficult to choose,” she said.
