Golden times: Caro­line Tam­blyn, of Roxburgh, stud­ies her favourite art work in this year’s Roxburgh Artz Fes­ti­val – by Gill Shaw, of the Lake Roxburgh Vil­lage. The sculp­ture is a life-sized, mixed-medium work, which in­cor­po­rates felt­ing. It stopped many in their tracks when faced with the un­usual statue. Vi­cepres­i­dent An­drew Barr said the fes­ti­val, run ev­ery sec­ond year, did not have as many en­tries this year, ‘‘but what we have is good qual­ity and we have been able to set it out so much bet­ter.’’ A ‘‘gold’’ theme was cho­sen in keep­ing with the 150-year cel­e­bra­tions. The best paint­ing award went to Wyn Dry­den, of Alexan­dra, with an acrylic on can­vasGolden

Highly com­mended were: Julie Ad­dis, of Dunedin, Liz Kempthorne, of Clyde, and Lyn­ley Van Alphen, of Ta­panui. The Ap­plied Arts prize went to a gouache piece, by Ol­wyn Dykes, of Alexan­dra, and a pot­tery plat­ter, Image­sof

by Neil Hey of Ran­giora. Highly com­mended was a Vic­to­rian mu­sic box from John McEl­roy, of Millers Flat.
