CONGRATULATIONS TO JAN LAWLER FROM BALRANALD IN NEW SOUTH WALES
WINNER OF THE 2013 PEOPLE'S CHOICE AWARD WITH HER WORK "KIDS N PONIES"
We had 86 votes in total for the people's choice award. This is amazing as it is the first year we have had it. The votes were widely spread amongst 50 different artworks attesting to the fantastic standard of work this year and people's varying tastes.
Jan won with 6 votes. A close "tied" second on 5 votes was local TOM PALL with his 3D piece "STRUNG OUT"
Unfortunately this picture does not do the piece justice, which was rustic, beautifully creative and much admired.
RYAN GOLDER of Goondiwindi, tied with Tom for second place with 2 of his works "SHRINK" and "ODOURLESS" proving that contemporary fans are alive and well in our district. This enamel painting is very difficult to do so a huge achievement for Ryan to produce 4 amazing works for the show.
We don't have any other photos of Ryan's Odourless work but then again you get to see all of us again in our finery!
Third place with 4 votes was again tied, between Julia Griffin from Walcha with her work "BURREN JUNCTION"
and Robyn Rumbold from Goondiwindi for "JUST FOR YOU"

Congratulations to all of you.
