WAA Black & White Art Challenge, Exhibition
and Christmas Party 2012
Lots of laughter, chatting and talking...people enjoying themselves, wine, good food - the black and white show and our Christmas afternoon tea....what a great way to finish up the year!
An estimated seventy people possibly more enjoyed the art show of over 70 artworks, all in black and white of course but featuring two sections: 1. Scratch art and 2. All other types of black and white art.
People enjoyed voting for their most popular artwork, which went to Jo White for ‘High Society’ a large scratch art featuring fashionable dresses of high society ladies. Jo said she designed the dresses herself which made this exceptional artwork even more remarkable. Well done Jo, you well deserved popular choice.
A big thank you to all those who helped to make this show such a success, our judges Jenny Johns, Colin and dot Browne, Ann Feidler, Tony Northover, committee members; Julia Mattea, Naine Sankey, Colin Foster and Helen Halliday, and all those who helped set up, hang and packup, thank you all.
