Artwork display

CHECK out the work of some of the finest local artists at the Coffs Harbour Education Campus this week.

The library at the CHEC is hosting a display of students’ work as part of the annual North Coast TAFE Art Aquisitive program.

The display this year has seen a wonderful spectrum of art entered, from well-crafted 3D sculptures to ceramic works, paintings and photographs.

“The artworks on display showcases local student talents, demonstrating practical examples of how our students approach and solve concepts and technical skill exercises that are presented to them throughout their courses,” said TAFE Student Association Officer, Mark Thorn.

The major prize this year has been taken out by Clare Thompson, with her work ‘Margorula Sinensis’.

Second and third respectively were Lucinda Lum with ‘Tribe Elation’, and Gail Day with ‘Village’. Highly commended awards went to Nancy Chapple, Teresa Wieruszewski, and Michael Connolly.

“Winners from the Coffs Art Show will now progress to the Art Acquisitive Gallery exhibition that is held in Lismore each year, as part of the North Coast wide competition.”

The student works will be on display to the public at the Coffs Harbour Education Campus library until Friday, September 17, when the local winning works will be sent to Lismore.
