    A former guest judge of the Camden Art Prize, Mr Stratton was named overall winner of the 40th annual exhibition on Friday night.

    The Camden Art Prize committee has purchased Mr Stratton’s winning entry — titled Desert Country – Lake Mungo 2 — which the judges described as a ‘‘stunning painting that works on all levels and a worthy winner’’.

    The renowned landscape artist has entered the Art Prize competition almost every year since it started and has previously won.

    Mr Stratton retired from his position as a senior arts teacher in 1989 so he could paint full time. He has won more than 280 art prizes and was awarded the Order of Australia Medal in 2006 for his service to the arts and as an educator.

    The exhibition can be viewed until May 15 and is open from 10am weekends and 12.30pm weekdays. Entry is free.
