Ron Esplin Judges Geraldine Arts and Plants Art Exhibition - 18th Nov 2014

Ron Esplin judges the Geraldine Arts and Plants Art Exhibition:

The Annual Geraldine Arts & Plants Festival was held on 14th - 16th November 2014. It was a three day event including an Art and Photography Exhibition, a Boulevard Market on Friday and a Market Day on Saturday. The Geraldine Arts & Plants Festival was first set up in 1988 and has been going for over 25 years.
A small group of volunteers work extremely hard from year to year to bring this huge event to Geraldine. An excellent gathering of superb craft and plant stalls on Friday and Saturday bring big crowds eager for bargains.

The winner of the Arts & Culture award 2006:

In 2006, it was the winner of the Arts & Culture award and in 2009 were given a Commendation of Arts & Culture at the Trustpower Community Awards.
I am grateful to Feren Macintosh who co-ordinated the event, and invited me to be the judge of the art work.
It was a privelege and a pleasure to meet this hard working community and to be judge of the Art which embraced both paintings, multi-media and sculpture.

Very high quality work:

The quality of the work was very high, and the overall winner was "The Sherlock Holmes" by Richard Bolton, an outstanding watercolour of people outside an English Pub. The winner of the Sculpture section was a remarkable piece named "Felice" constructed from metal and wire by Annie Lambourne. Annie breathed life into this inanimate collection of bits and pieces to form a very life like cat.
