Congratulations to Martin King, whose work from the 2022 Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize has been selected to travel in the touring exhibition.
The Waterhouse Natural Science Art Prize commemorates the birth of The South Australian Museum’s first curator, Frederick Waterhouse. The prize encourages artists to investigate the world around them and present their perspectives on natural science. Entrants respond to scientific issues facing our planet, offering a platform to contribute to the debate.
The prize-winning artworks and commended finalists will undertake a tour following the Adelaide season. They will be shown at the National Archives of Australia in Canberra from Friday 16 September until Sunday 13 November.
