Congratulations to Julie Fragar, winner of the 2017 Ramsay Art Prize Lipman Karas People’s Choice with her work Goose Chase: All of Us Together Here and Nowhere.
Of her $15,000 win, she says ‘I am blown away by the support I’ve received from visitors to the 2017 Ramsay Art Prize. To be selected as the people’s favourite from an exhibition of such high-quality works and artists is an honour. Thank-you visitors and thank-you Lipman Karas for your generous sponsorship.’
Sponsors Lipman Karas will continue their support of the Ramsay Art Prize People’s Choice for the next two iterations, in 2019 and 2021. As committed supporters of Australian contemporary art, Lipman Karas hopes this prize will encourage emerging Australian artists engagement with the wider community.
The 2017 Ramsay Art Prize exhibition runs at the Art Gallery of South Australia until Sunday 27 August.
