Art show impresses

The Waikino Hall was packed with artists and art-lovers on October 20, for the ARTWaikino exhibition opening and prizegiving ceremony. “The artwork we’ve got here today is of an exceptionally high standard,” committee chair Rod Hawkins said. Grand winner of the art category was Helen Parsons, with her work Gathering. Judge Elette Wheeler said the piece was “conceptually magical and enigmatic”.
