MAS Autumn Exhibition 2022

Best In Show


no 16 “Sunset-Port Melbourne”
by Tegan Colliver

Great composition and use of light and shade. Darks on the bottom left to break in clouds on top, give great balance to the main subject.

Best Other Media / 3D


no 49 “Flower Dance”
by Janette Jeffrey

Lovely use of colour which created an interesting look. The accidental tube of paint was an added bonus.

Highly Commended

no 5 “Abstract 3”
by Lilja Bauer

Pastel soft colours and shapes make this a pleasing piece to be hung and admired

Best Acrylic


no 69 “Tranquil Place”
by Terry O’Keeffe

Very Monet approach and the soft touch is a bonus to this piece. Dark foreground adds to the yellowish tinges on both sides which takes the viewer up and inside the water.

Highly Commended

no 80 “Stable Sunrise”
by Wendy Swan

Excellent use of light and dark with the subject almost alive. The balance is well handled and composed.

Best Pastel / Drawing


no 71 “Prud’hon 2 Locked Down”
by Bernadette Pilli

Great use of the figure to give the viewer a sense of peace and beauty. Light on one side adds to the composition.

Highly Commended

no 61 “Sea Sponge”
by Margaret Meadows

Subtle but complex use of the medium. Nice darks and shaded areas.

Best Watercolour​


no 68 “Outback-signs of Sunset”
by Terry O’Keeffe

A free flowing image that uses warm colours of the area and great use of tone and light and complementary sky.

Highly Commended

no 73  “A parliament of Owls”
by Angela Richardson

Love the owls and the artist has mingled them with multi-coloured washes to add to the image.

Best Oil​


no 17 “ Strelitzia”
by Wendy Colliver

Super Balance and use of colour and shade. Again the composition leads the eye in.

Highly Commended

no 72 “Mapping Yarra Glen”
by Bernadette Pilli

Interesting concept that draws the viewer into a unusual but pleasing image.. very inventive
