Every Precious Drop a Winner

Fellow CABBI Members Carmel Cox and Adrienne Conway, both Long Beach artists, were delighted when they were both notified that they had been short listed as finalists for the ART2O Competition.

Carmel and Adrienne travelled down to Bodalla Community Hall last Friday evening to attend the opening and announcement of the winner of Art2O.

Artists participating in this competition were required to produce artwork that reflected the theme of conserving our precious water.

Carmel’s triptych titled “Every Precious Drop” was announced the winner of the Open 2D works. Carmel’s winning painting comprises of three panels.

Panel one depicts crystal clear blue water with detailed air bubbles.

Panel two is a typed list of all the ways to conserve our water. This panel was then drawn back into with 3D water droplets and a message to the viewer, hidden within the text.

Panel three shows an aerial shot of dry, parched earth and the beginning of a river system making its way across the land, bringing with it new life and growth.

After the triptych was matted, Carmel drew more water droplets onto the mat frame, carrying the theme of water past the painting itself.

“I was so excited to win this award; it was a very emotional moment for me” said Carmel.

The ART2O exhibition will remain on display at Bodalla Hall until Friday 26 May.
