Maleny Art Awards

Congratulations to all COMA members who submitted works to the 2009 Maleny Art Awards held over the June long weekend.
Local winners were Diane Somers-Cook - 1st prize watercolour + Anne Atkinson - 1st prize contemporary abstract + John Morrison - 3rd prize traditional oils/acrylics + Gary Myers - 1st prize traditional oils/acrylics + Heather Jones - 2nd prize Australian native fauna - Jan Scullion + 3rd prize traditional pastel ...
Many other COMA members had works hanging - and I must complement Pat Cale, Sue Gilmour and Audrey Raymond - for 3 paintings that were definite show stoppers.
And featured 3D artist at the show was Meike van Sambeeck's stunning pottery.
This is the 16th year the Anglican Church of St George's has run the show - it's a hard show to appreciate visually - with so many entries in such crammed hanging space and such a variety of subjects and standards - but the organizers have done a sterling job with what they were given - and the committee must be congratulated.
Competition judge was Bree Richards and the champion of the show is "Let's play Horsy" by Amanda Russian.
