Postbag Colour Challenge 2018: “All That Glitters Gold”

ANZEG Postbag Colour Challenge



Those who Exhibited will have received their entry into All that Glitters Gold back safely. We sent them straight from the fair. As this is a non-selected exhibition there are no Judges comments. 

The exhibition looked fantastic at the Craft Fair and created a lot of interest. There was a steady flow of people examining the pieces. 
It was interesting to hear the comments and count up the Viewers’ Choice votes back at the motel at the end of each day. 
The pieces have been photographed for the archives, to be published in the April Threads (this is of course is at the editor’s discretion not automatic) and to be part of the 2019 ANZEG calendar.  Order form available in News Section for Diaries and Calendars.
The award winners of All that Glitters Gold are:-
Jane Whitehead “Arabian Buildings”  winner
Shirley Pygott  “Phoenix” merit. 
Helen Milbank  “The Tree of Memories” equal Viewer’s Choice
Caroline Strachan - “When Neutron Stars Collide” equal Viewer’s Choice.
Thank you all for entering this exhibition as it is an important part of our public profile. 
I look forward to receiving your entry in “Outside the Square” for next years Postbag Challenge. 
Kindest regards
Paula Hucklesby
