BAYSIDE SCULPTURE STUDENTS TAKE OUT AWARDS

Congratulations to Susie Ashkenazi and Esther Goldberg for their success at the recent Association of Sculptors of Victoria 2019 Annual Awards Exhibition.  Susie won the Meridian Fine Art Foundry prize for her ceramic piece ‘Relic”. It was described as ” a powerful work of a fragment of a larger-than-life-sized head reminiscent of the destruction of the beautiful buildings and sacred objects which we have lost recently in wars and acts of deliberate violence…”

Esther’s piece,  ‘Ballet Dancer” was highly commended in the Andor Meszaros Sculpture prize division. The judges said “This sculpture is masterful and expressive.  The body flings itself back in a controlled and yet abandoned gesture.  The work embodies the soul and the muscularity of a ballet dancer.”
