Every year, the Whitecliffe Fine Arts Department is generously supported by Auckland's two main art supply shops. Gordon Harris provides the Year 2 Painting Award, while Studio Art Supplies gives the Year 3 Painting Award to our Fine Arts students. The recipients of these awards are selected by a representative from each shop and are usually presented at the Year 2 and 3 Mid-Year Exhibitions. However, as neither of our sponsors were able to attend the Mid-Year openings this year, we arranged for the two prizewinners to install an exhibition of their paintings in the SGBR Rear Window Space Gallery. We invited Graeme Harris from Gordon Harris Art Supplies and Michael Mitchell from Studio Art Supplies to view the exhibition and meet the students. The event was very successful and rewarding for all involved. We would like to congratulate our students recipients, Simon Lundqvist from Year 2 and Shanti Brown from Year 3. Big thanks to Gordon Harris and Studio Art Supplies for their continuous and generous support.
The exhibition will be displayed in the SGBR Rear Window until 14 August.
