Greener Pastures for artist
THE 2011 Community Printmakers Murwill-umbah National Print Awards have been judged, with artists from across Australia recognised for their talents in printmaking.
The Tweed Shire Council Acquisitive Award was won by Braidwood artist Cecile Galiazzo, with prize- money of $5000 for her print Greener Pastures.
The judge, Professor Sasha Grishin, said the exhibition wouldn't have looked out of place in any of the major art hubs anywhere in the world.
“Greener Pastures is an exceptional and challenging print about the migrant experience,” Prof Grishin said. “The image depicts a boatload of refugees and is made up of a microcosm of tiny images which ultimately go back to a medieval mos-aic of Christ as navigator.”
The print exhibition will remain on display until May 29.
