Best in Show
"Ferry wharf, Birchgrove" by Steve Jannar

Judge's Comment

“The subject of this work captivates me........
Is the ferry coming in or leaving.. .the mystery of the lone figure looking backor to the land and why?   The use of colour, handling of the brush marks of a well executed composition made this work a stand out.”

Very Highly Commended
"Magic" by Renate Fischer

Judge’s comment – “The more I looked at this work, the more I wanted to be part of it.
The light and energy of the marks created with sensitivity that 
commanded my respect and attention.
