4 July 2011 | Painter Neil Taylor has been awarded the 2011 Mount Eyre Art Prize for his work Waiting For Dawn.

The prize is worth $8,000 and is organised by Rex Livingston Art Dealer in Sydney.

Taylor says his winning work “shows an almost primevally still moment which is nevertheless full of expectation of change in the coming bright light and colours of dawn. While it appears at first glance to be about subdued darkness and gloom, it's really all about hope and confidence in the future.”

The award exhibition is on view at the gallery until 10 July 2010.
