CHRIS Gold­berg has en­joyed a dou­ble dose of suc­cess at the City of Gos­nells’ Com­mu­nity Art Ex­hi­bi­tion and Awards, win­ning the com­pe­ti­tion’s two ac­co­lades. Ms Gold­berg’s paint­ing

In­vis­i­ble was a favourite among both judges and com­mu­nity mem­bers, as it won both the Over­all Ac­quis­i­tive Award and the Peo­ple’s Choice Award.

The strik­ing oil paint­ing brought at­ten­tion to the dis­ad­van­taged in an ur­ban en­vi­ron­ment and will add di­ver­sity and depth to the City’s art col­lec­tion.

Her paint­ing beat Carol Thomp­son’s Twi­light in Quin­ninup South­ern For­est

to win the Peo­ple’s Choice Award by just a sin­gle vote.

It was one of a record 284 other en­tries which were viewed by more than 800 art lovers.
