Art Show

As past juror (2013) of the TOAE, I was invited to the opening of the Best Of Award Winners. The Best Of awards were selected during the event last July by a different group of people from those who juried the show.

Lizz Aston received Best Of fibre.

Of all the pieces exhibited in all different mediums, the one below was my favourite. It is so simple and meditative.

It received Best Of mixed media. The work is by Geoff Buddie and Christine Rom.

Maybe I liked it because of the shadows.

Seen in the right-hand corner is Susan Card from
DISH Gallery and Studio.
She was one of the 5 jury members, including myself,
