Art At The Ridge’s second art exhibition was held on Friday 23 September 2011 at Sugar Club. This was our 1st Juried Art Exhibition, a judged event featuring 17 artists and 35 pieces of artwork. Art At The Range was very pleased with the wide range of artwork submitted, from which a selection was made to create what was a very exciting and interesting exhibition!
From Alex Ireland’s tribute to Amy Winehouse with his oil painting ‘We’ll Miss You’, to Naydene Gonnella’s 4-foot by 6-foot striking oil and wax painting ‘Awareness’ depicting a face, which is a current theme of hers and which was the prize-winning painting of this event.
From newcomer 19-year-old Shanice M LaPierre Armande’s very accomplished pencil drawings of her favourite animal – dogs (‘Sweet Jack Russell’, ‘Cute Spaniel’ and ‘Intelligent Husky’) – to another newcomer, 18-year-old schoolgirl Carinar Grove with her acrylic and watercolours paintings (‘Life’ and ‘Death’).
We also had pieces from Dina de Brozzi, Nancy Offermans, Debbie Eckert, Sallie Harker, Anna Boulton, Gabriela Luery, Jennifer Meranto, Denise Martin, Priscilla Looby, Jackie Phoenix, Glenroy Aaron, Eef Armstrong and 17-year-old Rashon Osbourne who is still at school – some of whom are already internationally renowned, while others were unknown until now.
The artwork is now back at Art At The Ridge (at Sugar Ridge) where it can be viewed at leisure.
