Congratulations to the winners of the 2011 Environmental Schools Sculpture Prize – Philippa Harrison from Kincoppal Rose Bay and Indigo Penn from Reddam House.
The Prize gives local school children the opportunity to combine visual arts with environmental story-telling, through the use of recycled materials.
This year’s theme was Sustainable Production and Consumption, and the way we use, or misuse, our precious resources.
Materials used to create these award winning pieces include: clay; paint; wood; electrical cable reels and plastic sushi soy sauces.
The winners were chosen by judges Dr Gene Sherman AM (Director of the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation) and Professor Ted Snell AM (Chair of the Visual Arts Board of the Australia Council, Director of the Cultural Precinct at the University of Western Australia).
The Viewer's Choice Prize winner was decided by the public and awarded at the end of the exhibition. Ramiro Fernandez was crowned the winner of the Viewer's Choice.
The Prize has been made possible thanks to funding from the NSW Government through its Environmental Trust.
