Wenona Student Selected As Young Archie Finalist


—Speaker I want to congratulate Grace Vonwiller, a year 10 student at North Shore school, Wenona, on being selected as a Young Archie finalist. Of more than 4000 submissions from young artists across New South Wales, Grace was one of just 70 subissins that were chosen as finalists in the acclaimed Young Archie exhibition. Grace's work is titled 'The Rock in my Garden', and is a portrait of her grandpa wearing his favourite gardening hat. Grace's portrait aimed to capture her grandpa's ability to inspire love and kindness in others through his warm and cheerful gaze. Grace's artwork, along with all the other Young Archie finalists, is currently being displayed at the Gallery of NSW. The winners will be announced 27 July this year. Congratulations Grace on such an incredible achievement.
