Congratulations to Natalie Sharpe who's painting 'Magpie and the Ibis Fish' in the Local Artist category of the GreenWay Art Prize took out the Derivan People's Choice Award. Thanks to our friends and sponsors from Derivan, Natalie wins $500 in Derivan art materials along with a year's subscription to Art Almanac.
Natalie's inspiration for her painting is described in her artist statement: "I am constantly inspired on the many bike rides taken along the Cook's River, inside the green corridors of the inner west trail. Obsessed with the glorious magpie for some years; I love their sounds and their song; their look, their striking black and white, their habitats, their survival, the tenacious and bold characteristics, their small families and strong communities. They live and survive the human onslaught on the availability of trees, air and food. Truly beautiful and unique. They love the eucalypts.
Don't miss your chance to see the amazing selected works at the 2016 GreenWay Art Exhibition.
The exhibiton is open on Friday 10am-4pm– and on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 3pm at Art Est. Art School and Gallery, Studio 4, 67-69 Lords Road, Leichhardt.
Selected works will tour to the following galleries:
Seaview Gallery, Dulwich Hill High School of Visual Arts and Design – Thursday 24 November to Saturday 3 December
Campsie Library – Wednesday 7 to Sunday 18 December.
The GreenWay Art Prize celebrates the precious urban green corridor in Sydney’s Inner West and aims to capture the essence of the GreenWay through visual art.
