Recent recognition of IAVA artists

IAVA artists have been out and about recently, gaining well-deserved recognition for their  work.

Julie Donnelly was awarded Third Prize in the Landscape section for Art  at the Royal Easter Show with her work Confluence.  This is the latest of many RAS awards for Julie.

Four IAVA artists were recognised  at this year’s Thirroul Seaside & Arts Festival. Jenny Jackson received Highly Commended with Norfolk Memories; Judy Bourke was also Highly Commended for her text-based piece  #Me Too Quilt and Sue Smalkowski joined the club with a Highly Commended for her commanding work Escarpment Dreams. John Kennedy won both First Prize in the Miniature section with his Self-portrait and Second Prize in the same section with a landscape painting.

And Libby Bloxham (who was selected as a Finalist for this year’s  Wollongong Sculpture Prize Biennale ) finally gets to see her work in situ at the Sculpture in the Gardens this week as the event launches. Congratulations to all IAVA artists for your hard work! We are proud of you.
