Clara Adolphs has won the Mosman Art Prize Emerging Artist Award for her portrait Sal, 2017 for her portrait of artist and friend Sally Anderson. This is the second time Clara has been awarded the prize.

Established in 1947, the Mosman Art Prize is Australia's oldest and most prestigious local government art award.  It was founded by the artist, architect and arts advocate, Alderman Allan Gamble, at a time when only a small handful of art prizes were in existence in Australia and the community had very little support and few opportunities to exhibit their work.
