Latest exhibition also open at Old Courthouse.LYNDA ROBINSON May 16, 2014 3:13am
Seymour and District Art Society members Kyria Crombie, Wendy Webster, Helen Miles, Alan Brown, Pauline Taylor (president) and Sue Brown in the jury box for the opening of the annual art awards and exhibition on Saturday.
Seymour and District Art Society held the opening of its Annual Exhibition of members’ work on Saturday afternoon. The weather outside the Old Courthouse Gallery may have been dreary, but a happy little band of members and Friends of the Gallery, as well as the general public, enjoyed a lovely afternoon inside.
Visitors were impressed with the standard of work on show, and the entertainment by the Avenel Singers was enjoyable.
The award winners for 2014 were:
Artist of the Year — Ann Voogt;
Artist’s Choice Hanging Committee Award for Most Outstanding Work in the Annual Exhibition — Ann Voogt;
Monthly Challenge Award — Alan Brown;
People’s Choice Award — Valma Crerar, for her painting Sunday Lunch, Trawool.
Valma Crerar is the current Charles August Gallery Solo Exhibition exhibitor (see story above).
The exhibition continues until August so there is still plenty of time to call in.
