Bright future for young art winner
THE Clarence Valley artistic stocks have received a boost with the precocious achievements of an 11-year-old artist.
Grafton Art Club member Christy Kun's works caught the eye of the judges at the Bentley Art Prize, where she won the Champion Exhibit for Primary Youth and the Phyllis and Reg Hartley Trophy for a youth (21 years and under) entry of excellence.
Award-winning artist and club member Rhondella Hyde has provided tuition for Christy, as well as all the young artists from eight years of age.
She attended drawing and painting classes at Artsfest, along with many other creative and talented people.
Christy's latest works are going to be part of the art club's 43rd Jacaranda Exhibition and Youth Art Exhibition and Awards.
It will be held at the Grafton community centre from October 29 to November 5.
