Awards presented to 90 talented young artists at colourful 2017 Crisps exhibition
AFTER a few late entries the final count for the 2017 Crisps youth art prize was a whopping 704.
The theme of Transport Through Time in the Granite Belt inspired so many interpretations.
There were far more 3D entries this year and the array of creative art works around transport was indeed phenomenal.
This year the entries were from kindergarten through to Year 12.
Our amazing sponsors, Dale and Jarrod Crisp, gave out 94 certificates and prizes.
The last count of attendees on the opening night was around 350 of family, friends, teachers and students.
The judges had a difficult task.
While the hanging of the art works took two days, there was another half-day spent judging.
Despite having more than 90 awards, it was felt many more deserved acknowledgement.
What always goes unsaid is the significant contribution of teachers, teacher aides, mums, dads and carers, who all helped to ensure that the art work was done and delivered amidst a heavy and busy schedule.
The changeover crew, who are all volunteers, worked hard to ensure this exhibition was installed with as much care and respect as all the exhibitions that they hang.
The Crisps exhibition is so uplifting with wild and wonderful creations, colour and individuality.
Come and visit the gallery to admire them.
The Stanthorpe Regional Art Gallery is open Tuesday to Friday 10am–4pm and Saturday and Sunday 10am– 1pm.
