IAVA has made it into EMSLA!!
This year we have two artists included in the Eutick Memorial Still Life Award: Karen Hook with her beautiful piece She looked at the seemingly insignificant in its intense aliveness and was lost for words to describe its grace (pictured) and Melissa Ritchie with the (also gorgeous) Arsenal for today.
Melissa seems to be everywhere at present – she’s also been selected as a Finalist for the Shirley Hannan National Portrait Award with her portrait of Nazeem Hussain, Game Face.
Meanwhile, down in Nowra Anita Larkin has been selected as a Finalist in the Meroogal Womens Art Prize with her thought-provoking sculptural piece Longing.
Warmest congratulations to all artists and good luck for the Awards nights!
