YOUNG HUNTER ARTISTS SUPPORT THE ENVIRONMENT


Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery art class students Claire Camilleri (Art Zone) and Jaccob Trevisan (Art Club) have had their artwork selected as finalists out of 1400 entries in the Threatened Species Art Competition. Competition Coordinator, Lorraine Bower, said the competition attracted more than 1400 entries, with more than 1600 children participating, exceeding wildest expectations.

"Our judges’ task has been very difficult," Lorraine said.

"There were so many beautiful, creative and thought-provoking works and only a tiny proportion of those entries were able to be chosen for our final exhibition."

Gallery art tutor, Jo O’Toole, was thrilled with the announcement. "It has been a wonderful learning experience for all of the 30 children from both Art Zone and Art Club classes," Jo said.

"Each young artist focused on a threatened Australian species and achieved amazing results. We are all so happy for both Claire and Jaccob for being selected as finalists. What a great opportunity to exhibit these creative paintings in Sydney."

Their work will be shown in either the Royal Botanic Garden or Surry Hills Community Centre and they are in the running to win competition prizes.

Winners will be announced on Thursday 7 September, Threatened Species Day at NSW Parliament House Sydney.

Lake Macquarie City Art Gallery runs weekly classes by trained tutors for children and adults, as well as holiday workshops and adult summer school. Art Space (a free drop in session 10,30am-noon each Sunday) is another popular session. For more information on our art classes, visit www.artgallery.lakemac.com.au
