Art Show – a Great Success!

Rutherford College hosted its first Art Show since 2012 on 1st July this year. It was a huge success. There was a fantastic turn-out and a great atmosphere with, at one point, approximately 300 people at the exhibition. The standard of work was high as we have some very talented students.

The Art Show was a fantastic opportunity for the students – starting their artistic careers by participating in an art show and selling their first works. This is something that can be put on a CV for applying for tertiary schools and jobs. Students also had the opportunity to learn about signing and framing artworks, and some also had the joy of learning about hanging not just one artwork but an entire exhibition!

The ‘People’s Choice Award’ of $100 cash was won by Jemima Tichborne (Y12). As there was only one vote separating first and second place, an impromptu second place award was given to Tiare Ngata-Aeramangamate, who received $50 cash. Most of the artworks were sold, and some all too quickly!
