The David Lloyd Youth Art Competition, 2014 has been a great success. 100 entries were received for the competition from a variety of Hamilton primary and intermediate schools. The judges, David Lloyd and Gaye Jurisich did an amazing job in selecting the top eight finalists.
Congratulations to the top eight finalists; Gabriel Renner and Sam Ogilvy from Fairfield Intermediate, Jeff Xiang from Hukanui, Stefan Smart and Maya O'Donnell from Marian, Miley Riley from Hamilton West, Ashlynne Singh from Maeroa Intermediate and Te Awhe Hurley from St Peter Chanel.
The finalists were rewarded a weekend art workshop over the 30-31st August, 2014 at the David Lloyd Gallery's studio. They had lots of fun creating with warm-up exercises and created their own large canvas paintings under the guidance of David Lloyd and Gaye Jurisich. These paintings will be on display at The Wallace Gallery in Morrinsville.
David Lloyd Gallery was open to the public on 31st August, 2014 between 2 and 4 p.m. where all the entries were on display. This was an opportunity taken up by many friends and family members to show support for the children involved in this competition.
