Elana Geddes and Sara Hellsing from the ANU school of art have been awarded the Legislative Assembly art prize as a part of the the emerging artist support scheme (EASS), announced Vicki Dunne today.
‘2012 graduates, painter Elana Geddes and glass artist, now Honours student, Sara
Hellsing are among the school’s most talented artists. I am very pleased to have
been able to recognise their work and their talent with prizes of $500 each,’ Mrs
‘Elana’s winning work, “Francesca” is a stunning oil-on-canvas portrait of a friend. It
captures much emotion and expression. I am very pleased that Emma has agreed
for the work to be exhibited in the Assembly building.
‘Sara’s winning piece is a remarkable work of images of family history fused into
glass. Happily for Sara that work has been sold overseas, so another of her works,
“Recollections 1” hangs in the foyer of the Speaker’s Office.
