Riverton artist Roland Wright won the Painting and Media section for his work Arrival, with another Riverton-based artist Lise Temple taking second prize for her painting Surface Tension.

Art prize judges were Russell Starke OAM – Director of the Greenhill Galleries, Gillian Aldridge – Mayor of Salisbury, Peter Moss – ICE WaRM Project Coordinator and Milan Millison – representing Waterproofing Northern Adelaide Regional Subsidiary.

The Watershed Art Prizes are an initiative of the City of Salisbury to boost public awareness of sustainable water resources management.
