Stephen Baxter wins Moreton Bay Regional Art Award 2011

 Stephen Baxter was announced overall winner of the Moreton Bay Regional Art Award 2011 with his painting Gold Coast Winter.

The award was judged by Philip Bacon who commented about the work, "This winning work will be a great addition to the Collection. It is a dancing, lyrical depiction of Queensland at its most attractive. The quick, nervous strokes and lines add to the immediacy of the captured moment".

The work was acquired for the Moreton Bay Regional Council Art Collection.
