Mark Wells from the John Glover Society spoke last Thursday evening about the importance to Tasmania and especially Evandale, of the Glover Prize which is an annual award for a landscape painting of Tasmania.
The project was initiated in 2004 by the John Glover Society, a group of enthusiastic people from Evandale. The prize is named after painter John Glover (1767-1849) who was an early colonial resident of the plains.
Mark gave us an excellent insight to this event and the topic was very well received by all in attendance.
Thank you Mark and we look forward to the continuing success of this award.
