On 11 May, the 2017 Bayside Acquisitive Art Prize was presented to Michael Vale for his painting, Snow. The work was lauded by the judging panel for “the accomplished nature of the work and its intriguing subject matter”.

The $15,000 prize is part of an annual exhibition hosted by Bayside City Council in Melbourne, Victoria to foster a sense of identity, pride and place in Bayside.

Michael Vale’s surreal painting will be exhibited alongside the works of 36 other finalists until Sunday 18 June 2017 at Brighton Town Hall.
