Wow! First Prize!

14 02 2013

I entered two of my art quilts into a local art awards competition/exhibition (Boyup Brook Art Awards), and found out last night that one of them had won FIRST PRIZE in the Textiles division! Not only do I get the honour and glory of being a first prize winner, but I’ll also get $300! One of the conditions of entry is that all pieces have to be for sale, so if it sells, then that will be another bonus. Gotta be happy with that!

The exhibition is on until this Sunday, 17 Feb 2013, at the Boyup Brook Town Hall (Western Australia), as part of the Country Music Festival.

The art quilt that won first prize was my ‘Estuarine Eucalypt’ piece:


My friend Bobbie won second prize for her art quilt that she made for our annual Challenge (the piece she entered is the second photo in this post:


Way to go, us!!! 😉

Many thanks to the organisers and the sponsors, without whom these art awards would not have been possible. The cash prizes were donated by IGA (overall), Scotts Brook Wines (paper, canvas, and mixed media) and Boyup Brook Farm Supplies (textiles, 3D sculptures, Indigenous, and packer’s prize).
