M’DINDI: Art Show Success


Bumper crowds turned out over the Easter weekend to enjoy the display of works at the Rotary Club of Alexandra’s 51st Annual Easter Art Show.

Entries, sales and average sale price were all up on previous years.
The Alexandra Art Excellence Award was won by Lorraine Lewitzka, with ‘Lunch Date’,

Section One, Oil or Acrylic, was won by Craig Davy for ‘Autumn Light’.

Section 2, Work on Paper, won by Max Wilkes for ‘Summer Landscape’.

Section 3, Any medium priced up to $750, was won by Vida Pearson for ‘Mallee II’.

Section 4, Woodwork, large platter, was won by Ernie Hunt.

Section 5, Photography, was won by Christine Siciliano, ‘Poppy’

Section 6, Emerging Artist, was won by Jill Keen, ‘Hot Afternoon’.

Most popular artwork, as judged by Art Show attendees, was Ann Capling, with her very topical work and engaging work, ‘The Covidian Era.’

“The Rotary Club of Alexandra thanks the community and Shire Council for supporting this event in so many ways; through sponsorships, catalogue advertising, with manpower to set up and dismantle the show, donation of goods and services- entertainment, publicity, refreshments, raffle prizes and in many other ways.

“Thanks also to the organising committee who have put in many hours over preceding months to put the Show together. It really has been a team effort by Rotary members and friends.”
