Seven of our artists from the Supported Activities art and craft sessions in Te Awamutu, made the annual IHC Art Awards semi-final.
The work of Hannah MacFarlane, Julie Tate, Stevie Cook, Andrea Meddings, Pauline Beuno, Sarah Griffin and Kathleen Bayer were considered for the awards which feature 100 pieces of art.
The awards provide artists the opportunity to have their talent recognised, their voices heard and to sell their work.
Tutor Theresa Siemonek from Enrich+ said she was thrilled to see so many of her artists in the top 100.
“I’m really proud of what our artists have done. They join a long list of our artists over many years who have featured in the IHC art awards.”
Enrich+ has 26 artists currently participating in its art and craft sessions in Te Awamutu. It is a place to come together to develop artistic skills and techniques with like-minded people. These artists will have their work on display at the Enrich+ Centre and Gallery in Teasdale Street.
Service manager Shelley Blair said the night on September 30 will celebrate the artistic talents of local people in the community.
