Artist’s work fea­tured on car­ni­val cover

The Chronicle - - News -

TOOWOOMBA artist Carolyn Wishart has won The Chron­i­cle Gar­den Com­pe­ti­tion’s in­au­gu­ral Cover Art Com­pe­ti­tion with her paint­ing ti­tled “Spring Time Joy”.

The cover of our pop­u­lar sou­venir vis­i­tor guide is al­ways highly an­tic­i­pated and this year The Chron­i­cle de­cided to of­fer it to Toowoomba’s creative com­mu­nity.

The Chron­i­cle Gar­den Com­pe­ti­tion Co-or­di­na­tor Leti­tia Ro­barts said the Cover Art Com­pe­ti­tion was in­tended to get our lo­cal artists more in­volved.

“We were over the moon with the 25 en­tries we re­ceived,” she said. “We al­ways like op­por­tu­ni­ties for com­mu­nity en­gage­ment and the Cover Art Com­pe­ti­tion was a great way to con­nect with our lo­cal artists.

“Choos­ing the win­ner was very dif­fi­cult for our judg­ing panel! Each and ev­ery en­try was beau­ti­ful in its own way.”

In ad­di­tion to see­ing her paint­ing on nearly 30,000 cov­ers, Carolyn also wins a $300 voucher from Mur­rays Art and Fram­ing and a one-on-one work­shop with artist Anna Bartlett val­ued at $495.

Congratula­tions also goes to Kristy Richardson our sec­ond place win­ner and Emma Swan who won third place. The top 10 en­tries in the Cover Art Com­pe­ti­tion will be on dis­play at Cobb and Co Mu­seum from Fri­day, Septem­ber 21 to Sun­day, Septem­ber 30.

Thank you to the judges, Anna Bartlett of Shiny Happy Art, Roslyn Hartwig of Mur­ray’s Art and Fram­ing, graphic artist Jane Bray and Ten­nielle Cop­son, both of The Chron­i­cle.

The Chron­i­cle Gar­den Com­pe­ti­tion Vis­i­tor Guide is the must-have guide to Toowoomba Car­ni­val of Flow­ers and pro­vides es­sen­tial in­for­ma­tion about the beau­ti­ful gar­dens of The Chron­i­cle Gar­den Com­pe­ti­tion and other fun flo­ral ac­tiv­i­ties.
