Local art celebrated at Green Hills

29-May-2017

The Stockland Green Hills Connectivity Centre in conjunction with Multiplex, the international construction company tasked with the redevelopment of Stockland Green Hills, recently ran an art competition entitled ‘The Impressions of Maitland‘.

 

The competition was designed to celebrate the creative talents of people registered with job providers at the Connectivity Centre and promote artistic endeavors within the Maitland community.

A total of 14 participants entered the competition, with a mix of artworks reflecting their view of the Maitland area.   Four Mai-Wel participants received awards for first, second, third and a Merit Certificate at an on-site award ceremony, held at the Stockland Green Hills Connectivity Centre in April.  

Mai-Wel participant, Briety Dorahy, received a 1st place award for her artwork ‘Magpie in Maitland’. Briety’s winning artwork has been transformed into a nine metre wide hoarding, unveiled on Thursday 27th April, at the first stage opening of the $412 million redevelopment of Stockland Green Hills.  

Briety’s artwork will remain on display at Green Hills until the end of August, offering the artist a unique opportunity for exposure to the public within the shopping centre.   Briety’s work focuses on patterns created from natural elements found in her local community of Maitland. 

Leaves, feathers and bottle brush blossoms are some of the elements she has used to explore mark making.   

Congratulations to Briety Dorahy (1st place ‘Magpie in Maitland’), Amber Shipard (2nd place ‘Endearing’), Alexandra Rennie (3rd place ‘Water Lillies’), Erin Dick (Merit Certificate ‘Helping Hands’) and Matthew Cullen (Merit Certificate ‘Old Bridge’).
