Exhibition features scholarship winners

Mercury Bay Art Escape is a wonderful confluence of art of all kinds for the Coromandel Peninsula and in March 2024, as many as 40 artists in all genres will open up their studios to exhibit and demonstrate their art. As part of the Art Escape’s reaching out to up-and-coming artists and encouraging all forms of art from the younger generation, the Art Escape Trust sponsors an Art Escape Scholarship each year to a Year 13 student at Mercury Bay Area School.

That young scholarship winner is assisted in their study at a university level course of their choice. The winner also chooses artists who are members of Art Escape from with whom they would like to spend time learning and doing workshops. This aspect is facilitated by mosaic artist, Anne Bowden.

This is the very first year that the Mercury Bay Art escape has offered an exhibition of the Year 13 Art class’ work as part of announcing the winner of the scholarship for 23/24 and featuring the work of the previous year’s scholarship winner.

 Emma Jones was the 2022/23 Mercury Bay Art Escape scholarship winner, and the 23/24 winner is Siobhan Cox.

 Both young women have achieved an outstanding level in their art.

The Exhibition of scanned art of the chosen pieces by the Year 13 students, including the work of both scholarship winners was opened on Saturday, 9 December at 2.00pm at Hot Waves  Café,Hot Water Beach. It will be open until 14 January.
