On Wednesday 5 April, Members of CABBI and the public turned out at The Gallery, Mogo for the opening of their first judged exhibition based on the theme of “Where We Live”.
The exhibition judged by Andrea Warren was organised so that the space could showcase the work of other artists who normally don’t show in The Gallery.
Debra Smith took out First place in Painting with her work titled “Morning Visitors”; a delightful composition of two magpies. Judges comments: “You have captured these wonderful birds like you know them well.”
Adrienne Conway took out Second Place in painting with her work “Deua River Reflections”. “You have captured the light of the Deua River, a hard thing to do. I feel like I’m there”, were the judges comments.
Laureen Phillips took out First in Sculpture/craft with her lovely soap stone carving called “Headland”. You have captured the essence of the headland beautifully. I can feel the changing weather” said Ms Warren.
Hazel Hofmann took out Second in sculpture/craft with her work titled “Objects made from rocks, feathers, fleece and gumnuts”. A wonderful mix of colours and textures. I feel like I know where you live”, were the judges comments.
The exhibition remains open daily from 10am to 4pm until Sunday 30 April. Enquiries can be made to The Gallery on 44742243.
