Manjimup-Bridgetown Times - - News -

Bridgetown High School stu­dents had a suc­cess­ful show­ing at the South West Vis­ual Arts Spec­tac­u­lar, tak­ing out three podium fin­ishes, in­clud­ing a first place.

The win­ning pieces of art­work will be on dis­play at Bun­bury Re­gional Art Gallery un­til July 26.

Naomi Carl­son (Year 7) won first place in the sculp­ture cat­e­gory for her piece Ever­last­ings.

“I'd like to say thank you to Bruce Carl­son from Bridgetown Wind­mills, Estelle Row­cliffe Carl­son, the judges, all of the peo­ple who liked my art, gave it com­pli­ments, and be­lieved in me,” she said.

Shanti Sep­piyo (Year 8) and Rose Gold­smith (Year 10) placed third in the sculp­ture and 2D cat­e­gories re­spec­tively.

Art teacher Melissa Jones said she was proud of all of her stu­dents who had en­tered the com­pe­ti­tion.

“How fan­tas­tic for these bud­ding artists to see their work in a beau­ti­fully cu­rated ex­hi­bi­tion at Bun­bury Re­gional Art Gallery,” she said.

“COVID put the brakes on all reg­u­lar ex­hi­bi­tions and com­pe­ti­tions, so be­ing able to en­ter stu­dent work to the South West Virtual Arts Spec­tac­u­lar was a real lift.”

Com­pe­ti­tion pieces are avail­able to buy on­line on the South West Virtual Arts Spec­tac­u­lar page.
