The concluding unique event at our annual Advocate Art Award is the ‘Walk’ where artists share with interested members and visitors aspects of their art practice and exhibit. To close, afternoon tea was kindly provided by our committee member Françoise and daughter.
The People’s Choice Award, to the value of $1200 was shared between Sheriden Appel and Jenny McFarland for their popular metal sculpture entry titled “Summer’s Bluff”. Congratulations to both Sheriden and Jenny.
We wish to sincerely thank Nathan King, Exhibitions Officer at Araluen who not only curated the exhibition but conducted the ‘Walk’ when at the last-minute our president Ron fell ill.
Finally the Special Voters’ Prize, the painting generously donated by Papunya Tula Artists was won by Henry Smith. Congratulations Henry!
