Artists exhibit their talents

IT WAS exciting for young and old who attended the prize-giving at Glenreagh Memorial Museum’s fifth Cedar and Steam exhibition.

It was opened on Friday by the mayor of Clarence Valley Council, Richie Williamson, with the welcome performed by Gumbaynggirr elder Wendy Craig.

High school student, Amber Frith, 17, won the painting section with judge Terri Butterworth commending Amber on her portrayal of her great uncle, Bruce Goodenough.

Cassie Meldrum won the youth photographic section with an amazing photo of a portion of a horse’s head – with the eyeball the centre of focus.

One of Glenreagh’s Heart Start heroes, Judith Hanson, made a clean sweep of the Fibre Art section with her two beautiful tapestries.

Ashlee Kemsley, 8, scooped the youth pool with wins in the painting, sculpture, and a second prize in the school’s section.

The museum committee was not able to give away $150 allocated for the adult 3D sculptures as there were no entries this year.

More than $1000 in prizemoney was awarded to artists, thanks through sponsorship from the Clarence Valley Council and the Golden Dog Hotel.
