A TERRIFIC EVENT AT THE GALLERY: STAY INFORMED ABOUT OTHER ARCHIBALD EVENTS!

 

The three artists were each unique in their conversational styles and were willing to share some personal details about their work, who they are, what obstacles they have encountered and who has been their muse. Lovely Saturday afternoon event! 

 

HAWKESBURY REGIONAL GALLERY EVENT -- SATURDAY 10 JUNE 1PM

What an opportunity! 

Three  Archibald Prize finalists will be coming to the gallery on Saturday 10 June for a conversation about their 2016 Archibald finalist portraits, including their sitters, their process and the spectacle that is the Archibald Prize.

 

   Portrait of a Man  -- with his artist.

 

They are Kirsty Neilson, Natasha Walsh and Nick Stathopoulos, who came along to our opening on 19 May and was also here back in 2013 when we last had The Archibald. There's a great story attached to Nick's portrait of human rights lawyer, Deng Adut, but we'll let him tell it.There's also the possibilty that Deng himself will attend...

INNOVATIVE PROGRAM -- INNOVATIVE COLO STUDENTS

 

 

 

Recently, Colo High Students submitted a script to the 2017 Sydney Water competition 'Brand Without A Bottle' and to their delight, the Colo script was  'short listed'. with five other Sydney area schools. The Colo team is now up against teams from Bonnyrigg High School, Chifley College Shalvey Campus, Hurlstone Agricultural High School, Muirfield High School and Strathfield Girls High School.

 

 

  • First prize of $5000 and 2 runner up prizes of $2500 will be awarded to the three finalist schools for water projects or needed resources in the school. 
  • The competition challenged Year 7 and 8 English students to recognise their creative skills by writing a compelling short script that shifts public perceptions and encourages people to choose tap water over bottled water. 50 scripts from Sydney schools were submitted.

 

Sydney Water brought on board a professional company to film the scripts submitted from each of the six short-listed schools and all six films will be hosted online for members of the public to help choose the winner. The Colo students ask for your vote beginning 29 May through 12 June. We'll provide a link on the 29th. Great opportunity for a local school!
