St Martins Art Show

AWARD WINNING: Neave Delaney receives ‘Best In Show’ accolade for her exhibition ‘Bubbles that Float Around Me’.

ARTISTIC students from St Martins Lutheran College had their work on display last week with the opening of the 2021 Art Show.

The evening hosted a small number of families and community members while the college’s Foundation to Year 12 students produced and showcased hundreds of art pieces displaying a wide variety of mediums.

College principal Alan Connah said staff and community members were extremely impressed with the quality and variety of work presented by our students. “Their art truly reflects the incredible amount of hard work, talent and skill invested and we are very proud of their achievements,” Mr Connah.

Art show judges for this year included arts and cultural development officer Serena Wong and local photographer Tim Rosenthal.

The accolade of ‘Best in Show’ went to Year 12 student, Neave Delaney, for her body of work ‘Bubbles that Float Around Me’.

The other major award for the evening is the Sarafina Morale Memorial Trophy and was awarded to Year 10 student, Kaelan Mee.

Ms Wong stated the creativity and skills of the next generation always bought her joy and being asked to judge the show was a privilege.

“There are students with some serious talent and I look forward to seeing where their creativity takes them,” Ms Wong said.

The event was catered entirely by the college’s Year 11 food and hospitality students, who planned, prepared and executed an assortment of cocktail food.

Students from the College’s middle and senior school performed throughout the evening to an attentive crowd with the entertainment topped off with performances from the senior and jazz choirs.

Mr Rosenthal said the level of creativity and artistic skill shown by the talented students was amazing and that it was a pleasure to be involved.
