Geelong Art Revealed 2012 – Photo Extravaganza

The Geelong Art Revealed exhibition, held at the National Wool Museum during the Streets Are Alive festival, saw over twenty local artists participate in the two-day event. Works were displayed on easels, in keeping with the theme of the ‘artist’s studio’. Some of the artists demonstrated special techniques while others were available to chat about their work.

The Judges Award went to Josh McCrimmon for his mixed media painting Spotted Pardalote, and the People’s Choice Award went to Maree O’Donnell for Southern Aurora, a large, abstract painting on aluminium sheeting and finished in resin. Alex Den Dryver received the Encouragement Award.

The participating artists were: Susan Ardern, Glenys Bryant, Karen Burby, Patsy Bush, Judy Cohn, Peter Dawson, Jo-Anne Dimopoulos, Alex Den Dryver, Debbie Haines, Maria Harrison, Janne Kearney, Lynette Kent, Jacinta Leitch, Josh McCrimmon, Jakki Oakes, Pam O’Donnell, Maree O’Donnell, Chloe Reilly, Robyn Sandford, Jan Synot, Samantha Thompson and Paul Walker.
