The annual Hills Shire Orange Blossom Festival Art Exhibition is a highlight on the Castle Hill Art Society’s calendar and Living Choice has been a long-time sponsor of two of the awards.
Jill Bluzmanis of the Castle Hill Art Society said the exhibition opening night at the Castle Glen Community Centre was a wonderful occasion with the Mayor of the Hills Shire Council, Peter Gangemi, presenting the awards. Due to the opening of the Living Choice Galston sales office on the same day, Regional Manager, Gail Eyres, was unable to attend, however she did visit the next day and said the exhibition was of a very high standard.
The Living Choice Glenhaven Award for the Artist age 60+ was presented to Lee Benton for her magnificent painting of the Emma Gorge in the Northern Territory.
“Lee was very excited and was thrilled when she met Gail the following day and also received a beautiful hamper,” said Jill.
The Living Choice Galston Small Painting Award was won by Nel Davis but as Nel is currently travelling in New Zealand, the prize was collected by a committee member on Nel's behalf.
“Nel will be beside herself when she gets back home and hears the news. Thank you to Living Choice for sponsoring the Art Awards again and adding to the excitement of both opening night and the exhibition.”
