2018 EXHIBITION

LAUNCH

The YP Art Exhibition Working Party were pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Poster Competition at the official Launch of the Exhibition on Thursday 26th October 2017. With a large number of entries, the Working Party selected four finalists with the winner being announced at the launch event.  Miss Zoe Holmes, a seven year old Yorke Peninsula resident who entered the ‘local inspiration’ and ‘embrace art’ categories was thrilled to win the competition. The young artist provided an image for the poster which depicted fishing at the Port Victoria boat ramp and reminded the young artist of having fun with her family. It was a wonderful and colourful representation of the Yorke Peninsula. Councillor Alan Headon, Chairperson of the YP Art Exhibition Working Party presented the winning certificate and a $250 gift card to Zoe.

The launch also opens entries into the 2018 Exhibition in addition to releasing Raffle tickets for sale. Two well-known Artists Victoria Rolinski and Terry Braund have donated raffle prizes. Victoria has created ‘NORTH WIND’ – painting 103cm x 72cm valued at $990.00 and Terry has created ‘BERRY BAY’ – painting 76cm x 61cm valued at $550.00.

 

Tickets will be available to purchase at all Yorke Peninsula Council offices and other locations throughout the Yorke Peninsula for $2.00 each or you can register your interest to purchase tickets.

First Prize - Painting by Victoria Rolinski

‘NORTH WIND’ 103cm x 72cm valued at $990.00

 

Victoria Rolinski is a plein- air impressionist artist and finds this to be the most rewarding and enjoyable way of painting. “You have a more heightened awareness of everything around you, including perspective, light and atmosphere. I want the painting to feel spontaneous and of the moment and strive to paint with an observant eye and a loose hand!” She has empathy with coastal protection and conservation of the dunes. Victoria is the recipient of numerous Awards.

Second Prize - Painting by Terry Braund

‘BERRY BAY’ 76cm x 61cm valued at $550.00

 

Terry Braund is an Edithburgh-based artist who works in a variety of mediums.  Although his subject matter is eclectric, much of his work focuses on local sea and landscapes.  The latter being influenced by his friendship with Fred Klix with whom he painted in the Flinders Ranges.  Terry has also painted with local talent which has introduced him to a diversity of styles and maturity to his work.

The exhibition is open to view and purchase art over the Easter long weekend with Ardrossan hosting the opening event and fine art exhibition, Edithburgh hosting a sculpture exhibition and Yorketown hosting the photography exhibition.
