Last week, David was very privileged to be invited along with sculptor Christine Simpson to judge this year’s Warringah Art Prize.
With almost 300 entries, it was our task to whittle these down to a selection of around 100. After all day Sunday judging, we had decided on 93 works for the final hang. The works are of a very high standard and I must commend Warringah Council for not only an excellent community initiative, but also an extremely well organised one.
I was delighted to learn after the winners were announced that the overall winner Katherine Edney is an arts student in her final year. I am sure that this well deserved win will be an important boost to the beginning of a successful career as an artist.
The Warringah Art Prize Exhibition is at Manly Vale Community Centre until Sunday, 15 July 2007, 10 am – 4 pm. Entry is free and the works shown are for sale.
