Artists impress at exhibition
A daffodil adorned bra and scrap metal horse were among highlights at the Matamata Society of Art Inc annual exhibition.
Organisers estimated 200 people visited the exhibition last weekend.
The exhibition featured an art competition themed ‘ Scene on a Journey’, won by Sonia Foster. Sonia’s daffodil adorned bra represented the journey she took with her mother, in her battle with cancer.
Te Aroha artist Adrian Worsley’s scrap metal horse and gargoyle were also very popular, as were the miniatures by Janet Bycroft.
Matamata Society of Art Inc president Margaret Dwyer says she was very happy with the exhibition. She was particularly happy to see it go so well considering this is the final year it will be held in the Memorial Centre, as it will be under construction in 2017.
Dwyer said art judge Michael Barker was very happy to see art work from the schools included in the exhibition, commenting that, that age is where it all starts for many artists.
