Mission Arts: A dazzling event
THE popular Mission Arts FOCUS Photographic Exhibition and Awards exhibition opened last Saturday. It was highly successful with 100 people attending the event staged within a spectacular setting of fairy lights.
Once inside the exhibition, you have the sensation of walking into and through the visual works celebrating life, culture and history by regional photographers.
Seventy-eight images from amateurs to professionals capture important community moments and offer a diverse and interesting portrayal of subjects within 6 categories.
The overall Judge’s Choice Award Winning Entry and also Pets Category winner was Maureen Carthy, a member of the Townsville Photography Club.
This year three entries were received from the Girringun Aboriginal Art Centre, with Chris Muriata’s photo, ‘After the Burn’ winning the Landscape/Seascape category.
The Mission Arts FOCUS Photographic Exhibition and Awards will conclude with the announcement of the People’s Choice Award on May 11. This is a free community event and for more information contact Mission Arts or visit their website www.missionarts.com.au
