...........Peter Alting Memorial Art Prize

About Peter Alting......

Peter was an esteemed and much loved artist who lived and worked in our community.
He helped us recognise and celebrate meaningful cultural values through ceramic art.

Peter's art was a celebration of his gifts, and the Peter Alting Memorial Art Prize scholarship aims to keep alive his vision of the arts being an enhancement of everyday life.

The photo below shows him working on the mural that now hangs on the Old Courthouse in the main street of Lilydale.  We celebrate Peter by using just a part of the mural as the header for our website.


This mural is large and imposing and you need to look at the original to fully appreciate and enjoy the phenomenal detail, the intricacies of the design and the overall meaning of the work.
