Ted wins art prize

Renowned watercolourist Ted Dansey has won this year’s ANL Maritime Art Award.

Announced at the Mission to Seafarers in Docklands on October 5, Mr Dansey said he was unprepared, but delighted with the $15,000 win.

“To anyone who wonders if they are ever going to win anything, I’d say believe in what you are doing and keep at it,” Mr Dansey said.

When presented a cheque by ANL general manager Tom Hollyman, he joked about not telling his wife about his good fortune.

Mr Dansey said his winning painting, Workhorse on the Orwell was inspired by a sketch from a 2015 to East Anglia in Britain.

The Mission to Seafarers Victoria ANL Maritime Art Awards and Exhibition is a celebratory initiative, recognising excellence in maritime and seafaring subjects in art.

The exhibition was open daily to the public until October 27 at the mission’s historic building at 717 Flinders St.

The awards showcase artists who have created pieces based on the theme, “the relationship between humanity and the sea”.

Since their inception in 2002, the awards have grown significantly in size and recognition and this year’s submissions have been received from across Australia.

“The exhibition is a key fundraiser for the Mission to Seafarers,” mission chief manager Sue Dight said.

“The charity relies on the support of the artists, the sponsors and the art community in raising funds for work of the organisation established in 1857.”

“The exhibition promotes all things maritime, not just ships, and helps raise awareness for seafarers’ welfare.”

This year a total prize amalgamation of $29,000 was awarded to artists across five categories:

The acquisitive ANL Maritime Art Award valued at $15,000;

The non-acquisitive Nevile & Co Runners up valued at $2000 (won by Chris Rowe);

The acquisitive ASP Best in Traditional Maritime Art Award valued at $5000 (won by Mary Hyde);

The acquisitive DP World Emerging Artist Award valued at $5000 (won by Jamie Preisz); and

The non-acquisitive VIVA Energy People’s Choice Award valued at $2000 (to be announced after the exhibition has concluded).
