MAGS Art Show student winners 2019

By August 22, 2019Visual Art

Once again, the MAGS Art Show had a stunning array of student works on display in the F.W. Gamble Hall for the public to purchase from August 16-18.
MAGS Art Show Curator and artist Colleen Pugh (pictured right) judged most of the awards and there were also Teacher’s Prizes as well as the Watershed People’s Choice Award.
Ms Pugh said she was impressed by the number of student works produced and by the vision and technical skills shown by the winning artists (pictured above) as they interpreted the theme of “Past, Present and Future”.
She said that some of the digital design work was of such a high standard that it would not have been out of place in a professional studio.
Just under 200 pieces of student art were purchased by the community, parents and local art collectors over the weekend.
Ella Rowe won the painting section with her work The Germainting, while Lois Wadsworth was second in the section with her Magenta Hummingbird – obviously a crowd favourite as it took out the Watershed People’s Choice Award.
Ella Keegan was first in photography with her black and white work Young Girl, while Maria Lowrie took out the Digital Design section with Diablo.
Students not only received kudos for their efforts but also prizes, kindly donated by Art Show sponsors.
