Well friends, it’s all over for another year! We trust that you were as excited about this year’s exhibition as were we.
But its success was a true partnership between you the artists who entered such a varied mix of styles and media; our committee who worked hard behind the scenes, but especially to “Mr. Art” Steve Anderson for his vital role as co-ordinator. The exhibition relied heavily on our support from Araluen and in particular from Nathan King. Many thanks to you all.
The major “Excellence Award” to the value of $2500 was taken out by Rod Moss with his ‘Centralian Table’ made of wood, glass & paint.
Prize by the Centralian Advocate & CAAS.
The People’s Choice Award of $1200, also supported by the Centralian Advocate and CAAS, was won by Al Strangeways for her oil on linen study of “Betty and the Fence 1”.
Ron Talbot took out the “Faces Prize” worth $800 with his imposing canvas painting of Lenie Namatjira.
Thanks to Bellette Media for sponsoring this prize.
Chapman & Bailey who kindly sponsored the “Places Prize” of $800 was awarded to Nina Machielse Hunt for her powerful acrylic & oil on linen study: “If the light is right the darkness will remain”.
Henry Smith with his quite amazing “Time Machine” won the “Stories Prize”. The prize also worth $800 was sponsored by 8Hele Gallery.
