Matamata Chronicle - - Front Page -

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.
