2015 Ryde Women’s Art Prize

The yellow king, Sharon Kitching

Went to the opening of the Ryde Women’s Art Prize last night. I was a finalist in the Open category, and they had a Community and Youth category as well. Lovely opening,  busy with lots of people, snacks, speeches and wine. Got there just as they where announcing the Open winner – so good timing. And the Winners!

Opening held at See Street Gallery at Meadowbank TAFE, Ryde.

Show runs form Friday 29 May to Saturday 13 June
Gallery open days: Tuesday – Saturday, 11am – 4pm.

My picks from the show  – Sadami, is the 2nd along in the shot – it’s a beautiful drawing, with a real warmth to the face. The painting closest is by Madeleine Pfull Double Trouble, who I’ve been following on Instagram
