Christchurch Art Show Awards Winners Announced

Christchurch Art Show Awards Winners Announced

Christchurch artists have won both major awards at the inaugural Christchurch Art Show.


Blue Mountain


Svetlana Orinka has won the Peter Yealands Wines Award with her work ‘Blue Mountain’. The Peter Yealands Wines Award is a people’s choice award and Svetlana was the clear winner and a very popular choice with the art show audience. The work was described as ‘a synthesised and lyrical landscape of changing tones, the light penetrating and enhancing a subtle tonal register’.


The winner of The Christchurch Art Show Award, Stephanie McEwen is also a Christchurch artist. Stephanie claimed her prize at the art show opening and awards event last Thursday evening. Stephanie’s work ‘Yellow Beach 1’ was the winning work selected by judge David Woodings.


Both artists receive a prize package valued at $3500 and both sold their award winning works to purchasers at the show.


Peter Yealands Wines congratulates Svetlana and Stephanie and look forward to seeing them both exhibit with The Christchurch Art Show in 2015.


Those who missed the Christchurch Art Show can still bid for an original piece of art created on the show’s opening night by award winning artist Vjekoslav Nemesh who was a sponsored guest artist by Peter Yealands Wines.


‘With The Open Heart’ can be viewed on the Christchurch Art Sale Page on Facebook. https://www.facebook.com/chchartshow.co.nz All proceeds from the sale of this work will be donated to the Christchurch Appeal Trust.
