Art Prize – Mission to the Seafarer’s “Runners Up” Awarded

NEVILE & CO | SPONSORSHIP FOR THE ‘RUNNERS UP’

by Peter Nevile

Nevile & Co are the Pro Bono lawyers for the Mission to the Seafarers. The Mission has been providing welfare services to seafarers for more than 150 years. Their role is as important today as it was in the days of sailing ships. Without shipping we would not have so many of the goods we take for granted. Without sailors there would be no shipping.

Each year the Mission stages what is the biggest maritime art exhibition in Australia.

We are proud to have been sponsors of Runner Up prize to the major prize for the past 6 years. This year the judges selected two artists to share the prize. I have set out the winning entries and details of each artist below.

I commend the work of the Seafarers Mission to you and invite you to have a drink at their bar.  They are located in the historic Spanish mission style building with the dome in Flinders Street extension.

From seafarers to fishermen and anyone who wants
to find their inner self; sometimes we just need to
connect with our interior storm to find our purpose.
