AMAZING ART @ CROOKWELL ART GALLERY POTATO FESTIVAL ART SHOW
So many people and so many red dots!
Friday Open Night at the Gallery was amazing wasn’t it! There was a queue of guests to get into the Gallery and a flurry of red dots placed on purchases.
We stopped counting visitors and did a count of empty glasses at the end of the night - about 60 people were at the Opening. Lyndey Milan OAM officially opened the art show and she commented that whilst the Archibald Prize was announced in Sydney, opening the show at the Crookwell Art Gallery was the better place to be!
Eighty-two exhibits filled the Gallery space - including paintings in oils, acrylic, pastel, watercolour, lino cut and scraperboard, rusted wire work, sculpture made from farm implements and, a bronze horse head sculpture. The Crookwell District Art Gallery is delighted to exhibit so many talented local and regional artists. At the end of the evening we had sold ten works - five sold in the first thirty-five minutes of opening!
We can announce that the Winner of the Unpackers Award is artist Rhonda Garner with acrylic painting “The Swinger” and the Winner of the Still Life Award is artist Lesley Gartrell with oil painting “Amaryllis”. Congratulations to both artists.
We have yet to draw the Peoples Choice Award at the end of the exhibition and will make the announcement as soon as possible.
