Digital Exhibition – Springsure Art Awards

Welcome to the CHRC Annual Art Awards – Springsure for 2022 online exhibition.

There are seven categories judged in the art awards: Easel Based Artworks, Works on Paper, Three-dimensional, Photography, Black & White, Juvenile 13-18 years, Junior 12years and under. Prizes include first and second for each category and the prestigious CHRC Acquisitive Prize from the open categories, with a prize pool of over $6000 on offer. People’s Choice Award is this year being voted for online CHRC Annual Art Awards – Springsure 2022 | Have Your Say, Central Highlands. Voting for the people’s choice closes Sunday 20 March 2022 with the winner being announced on 22 March.

The awards were judged by Brisbane based  artist Naomi White (www.naomiwhite.com.au) who loves working with light and the way it changes a vista throughout the day. The different shadows and patterns it makes and the way it can completely change colours from one moment to another depending on the time of day or even the season you see it in. She has a documentative approach but one that looks for an emotional reaction rather than a rational response. She likes to inspire audiences to reconsider their perceptions of the natural environment, from the intricate details that imprint the land, to grand and larger views that command our attention. White hope’s that her works elicit a sense of engagement, connection and wonderment, and allow for viewers to marvel at and sensitively consider the world around us.  White has held numerous solo exhibitions around Australia and shown in various art prizes such as the Wynne, John Leslie Art Prize, Tattersalls Art Prize, Mosman Art Prize, Fleurieu, Calleen, and the Brisbane Portrait Prize.

CHRC would like to congratulate the winners for 2022 and the exhibiting artists, both local and from afar, who have entered the competition creating a wonderful display of artworks. View the full list of winners here.

The exhibition can also be seen in person at the Bauhinia Bicentennial Art Gallery, Springsure until 13 April, 2022.

Bedtime Stories
Oil on Canvas
$600
I remember my Dad telling us bedtime stories when we were younger, not because I have a fantastic memory but mainly because now I realise how much he loves reading to his Grandkids. What a great loving thing to do for his children and the next generation. This is a portrait of my niece ready for bed and sitting up ready for a story or two. I really loved painting this oil on linen.
Catherine Boreham
Image Bearer
Oil on canvas,
$2,000
I am quoting my sisters words about this painting when she saw it. “Hannah is the same age as my son and with the passing time, I have watched her grow. When I saw this portrait of her I had to keep going back to look at it to figure out what had me so charmed. Her beauty was obvious, but there are subtleties in this image that could be easily overlooked. Her pose is exquisite, and her eyes seem to be gazing into my very soul. All of these things make me feel like the girl in this image knows who she is, and she is asking us if we know who we are. I thoroughly enjoyed creating this oil painting.
Tara Lewis
Treehouse

Rhythms of an Ancient People
Natural Found Ochres
$950
I have sourced and used natural, found ochres from the land in this painting, aspiring to connect with these ancient tribes who lived as one with the Land. Celebrating the rhythms of the Land, with their Dreamtime stories, rhythmical song and dance; as depicted, a Corroboree, as the full moon rises over a young land, still forming, their energy and movement are their relationship with their tribe and their land.

Acrylic on canvas

Lake Nuga Nuga, the largest body of water in the Central Queensland Sandstone belt was the catalyst for my painting “Emergence”. The wetlands are a vital home for birdlife of all kinds and an important place of cultural significance to the local indigenous people.

This artwork is called “Symbols of Me” and was created in 2021. The piece is multi-model, made with acrylic paint, pencil, paper, and even some stick-on gems.

Elaina Hayes
Suffocation
Acrylic on canvas
NFS
This piece is called “Suffocation”. It was created in 2022 and is one of my most recent creations. It was made using only acrylic paint. I used a pallet knife to achieve the background. I’m still not entirely sure what really inspired me to create it but as soon as the brief image popped up in my mind, I knew that I just had to paint it. The scene displayed, is a metaphorical interpretation of feeling entirely vulnerable and incapable of escape, being taken further and further down, losing your hope more and more. A feeling most people can relate to at some point in their lives.
Kiara Follent
Rainbow Lorikeet
Acrylic on canvas
$300
This piece was an exploration of colour and if the viewer will still recognise the main subject if the colour of the main subject and background were flipped. The background was done using a three-inch brush to layer the colour, whilst dry brushing the white acrylic for main subject.

Standing Tall
Lino print
$300
Beside the highway on the way to Injune, near the turnoff to Lake Nuga Nuga stands a copse of majestic gum trees. They line both sides of the bitumen as it readies itself to snake up through the ranges. I love how big and grand the trees are and how the sun filters through their leaves in the late afternoon, casting shadows on the road. I always feel a sense of awe when I pass them and feel humbled by their strength and size. If you stop and listen, you can almost hear the spirits of the land whispering and wrapping around you.
Leonie Hopgood
Walk About
Pastel on paper
$1,200
A walk in the countryside takes a journey to see bushland and landscapes at our own back door, with inspiration waiting to be captured into art. On the side of a path this gave me a helping hand to look for the beauty.

Life & Death
Graphite & coloured pencil on paper
NFS
My artwork, “Life and Death” – 2022, is a sketch-like piece made with just a black ball point pen, a graphite pencil and a brown coloured pencil. It doesn’t seem a very complex piece at first glance but the story it tells certainly is. It portrays a woman dying and her life flashing before her eyes. Thus the name “Life and Death”.
Kiara Follent
Primary Pier

Bury the Hatchet
Carved Ti-tree
NFS
We have an abundant supply of ti-tree on our property and this beautiful timber lends itself to carving, due to its oily texture. I noticed a fork in a young tree that resembled an axe, and so emerged this creation. At the time, I was miffed about the treatment I had received from someone, so I thought it an opportunity to live by one of life’s principles – don’t exacerbate the problem - bury the hatchet!
Hugo Spooner
Honey Tree
Carved wood and glass

Holy Bible: Genesis, Adam & Eve
Artists altered book
NFS
My altered book piece is called “The Holy Bible; Genesis and Adam and Eve” and was created in 2021. The piece was created using an old dictionary and various other materials (like acrylic paint, water colour, poscar pens, chalk pastels, and other paper).

I wanted to retell these famous classics in the form of pictures and symbols rather than words and to also explore more of the opposing side’s story.
