"Harry" wins First Prize
"Harry" posted on 5 Oct 2009 was awarded First Prize Overall at the Campbelltown Rotary Art Show on Friday 16 April.
Hans Koppan took out first prize in the oil and acrylic category.
The painting of Harry has been aquired by the Campbelltown City Council and joins its permanent collection.
I grew up at Athelstone, in the Campbelltown Council area, and attended Campbelltown High School (then they tore it down - broke the mold maybe).
I was particularly chuffed by the award since my late father also regularly submitted watercolours to this show and won a category award on at least one occasion.
BTW - don't forget the demonstration we are doing on Sat 24 April from 2pm on - its FREE and you'll see Hans, who won the oil and acrylic category in this year's show, doing an oil palette knife painting, Mike painting an acrylic on canvas, Alan doing a watercolour and I , doing an oil portrait - all in the space of a couple of hours. Venue Campbelltown Civic Centre , Montacute Rd.
