Group of Artists from Casterton, country Victoria, and further afield in Australia
It’s a busy time of year for Artists of the Valley members, with art shows in the district every few weeks. One such event was the Coleraine Art and Photography Show in August. A good contingent of our members entered works for judging in the painting in oils, acrylics, watercolours and, mixed media sections. We were all thrilled when it came time for the announcements and learned Pat O’Connell took out Best in Show for her painting ‘Creek Bed’.
Another coup for our group, albeit by association, was Alisha Johns winning the Youth Section for her mixed media entry depicting The Beatles. No one could have been prouder than Artists of the Valley President, Glad Laslett, Alisha’s grandmother, when the section winner was unveiled.
