For the second year, two events were successfully combined – the annual College Art Show and the Rector’s Cocktail Reception for Parents.
A record number of parents joined their sons and daughters for the evening, held the night before the third and fourth rounds of the intercollegiate football.
Once again, the standard of the students’ art was of a high standard and the works comprised a wide range of styles and media.
Special guest for the evening was old collegian, Lauren Pike, who presented the Rosie Pike Prize to Emma Waters for her vibrant painting inspired by her hometown of Port Lincoln.
In announcing the winner, the chair of the judging panel, Dr Sarah Moller, congratulated all who had contributed works for this year’s competition.
Brother Michael, in his address, reflected on the subjects that had been chosen by the artists. He suggested that they provided a window into the life of the College and its students – one in which there was a mix of purpose and fun, and where people mattered.
Amanda Krause won the People’s Choice Award and there was three-way tie for the runner-up: Noah Waters, Tayler Barnes and Rylee Snook.
Organiser of the event – Student Club Secretary Anna Ballantyne – was delighted with the evening and the way that the students supported it.
