MUDGEE ARTIST A DUAL WINNER IN MAJOR REGIONAL ART COMPETITION
Mudgee artist Rachel Melchers has won the PRO HART PRIZE FOR HANGING ART in the 2014 Art Unlimited competition held at Dunedoo at the weekend.
Rachel was awarded the $3000 prize for her oil on canvas work titled “Unravelling” that judge Brenda Gray described as having strong visual power demonstrating competency and control of media. Brenda Gray, who is Acting Director of Orange Regional Gallery, went on to say “The way Rachel has painted light and shadow is beautifully controlled. She has skilfully captured the textural quality of the subject matter in colours that are subtle and beautifully rendered.”
The work was chosen from 276 entries in the competition’s Hanging Art Category. It also won the ABC WESTERN PLAINS PRIZE, given for a work that depicts an aspect of the NSW Western region. Orana Arts Regional Arts Development Officer, Alicia Leggett, chose the work for this prize.
