We would like to congratulate all the winners and point out that only the joint prize winning pieces were acquired by the shire which leaves 43 other excellent pieces still available for purchase.

This years theme has been really well interpreted by the exhibiting artists.  We asked them  "how have our urban instincts impacted on our environmental harmony in the South West?"  Our intention was to encourage artists to extend their creative boundaries and explore local environmental themes.

This exhibition would not have been possible without the support of the following local businesses:

  • Pro Busselton
  • Busselton Toyota
  • More Cafe
  • Equinox Cafe
  • Busselton Machining and Diesel
  • Bay Signs
  • Precision Print
  • Busselton Dunsborough Times
  • Satterley Property Developers

And the Shire of Busselton
