“Sweetheart” by Patrick Morison

The Hive Studio Exhibition Award, decided and awarded by Helen and Simon Ferguson, went to Patrick Morison for his painting, “Sweetheart”.

The judges, Susan Foxlee, Alex Asch and Maggie Hickey, said that in their unanimous decisions, they had looked to award works that demonstrated “risk taking” and deviated from the norm, be that in subject, media or technique.

Visitors are now encouraged to cast their vote for the $500 People’s Choice Award to be announced on October 31

The 2019 QPRC exhibition continues until November 2 at The Q gallery, weekdays, 10am–4pm and Saturdays, 10am–2pm.
