MEDIA RELEASE

The people’s picks for Hunters Hill art have been officially recognised, following the successful staging of the Hunters Hill Art Exhibition.

Mixed media piece Combustion by Victoria Aleporos took out the $1000 People’s Choice Award, sponsored by Hunters Hill Medical Practice.

Watercolour on canvas We Are All Golden Sunflower Inside by Cee received the $500 Kid’s Choice Award, sponsored by MacMORGAN.

The votes were cast by visitors to the exhibition, staged at Town Hall in late 2022.

Hunters Hill Medical Practice Manager Katrina Arcus today (Wednesday 11 January, 2023) met with Victoria Aleporos to offer congratulations on taking out the popular vote.

Katrina said the practice was a proud exhibition sponsor.

“We love supporting the locals and supporting the local community,” she said.

“It’s a really important part of our practice.”

Victoria said she was excited just to be featured as a finalist in the exhibition, and very excited to win the People’s Choice Award.

“I’m absolutely thrilled,” she said.

“I’m still on a high.”

Having taken up art about three years ago, during COVID, the Hunters Hill Art Exhibition was the first prize Victoria entered.

The artwork was also a reflection of the time in which it was created.

“It was kind of a little bit related to what the world was going through, through COVID, all the mixed emotions.

“Sometimes you felt like you were going to burst.

“But I also see a lot of positivity in it too. Everything will pass.”
