Advocate Art Award 2013: The Winners

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.
