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.”

The public can vote for their favourite art work in the Credit Union SA Community Award.

The award is presented at the end of the four-week exhibition to the artist with the most votes, who will receive $500, with the runner-up receiving $250. For the first time the teacher of this year’s winning artist will also receive a $100 gift vouche
