SACE Board of SA Chief Executive Professor Martin Westwell congratulated the award winners and all the exhibiting students.

“The diversity of work at the 2019 SACE Art Show demonstrates that South Australia’s creative industries are in great hands with this next generation of young artists and designers.

“This year’s exhibitors will no doubt include some of those future industry leaders who have the potential to drive economic growth in South Australia.”
