We are very proud that Samantha Klein in Year 9 and Elenarose Plaister in Year 11 have both had their work Highly Commended in the Young Archie Exhibition. This is a competition for young artists held in conjunction with the Art Gallery of NSW’s Archibald Prize. Their works were selected from over 2100 entries and represents a remarkable achievement for these two students.

Elenarose’s portrait "My cousin Sarah" (16-18-year-old category) and Samantha’s portrait "By chance" (13-15-year-old category) will be on display at the SH Ervin Gallery from 11 May to 28 July. Samantha’s painting “By Chance”, a portrait of Trishanne Miller (also in Year 9) is about friendship and Elenarose's drawing, “My Cousin Sarah”, is a portrait of her cousin.

Elenarose describes the drawing below:

"This drawing of my cousin Sarah conveys the long days, starting at 3.30am, mustering cattle and branding the new year’s calves. Her tired eyes and dust-covered skin cannot belie the joy of working together with family, as expressed through her gleaming smile. The stark background suggests the long, hard drought the family is experiencing. Sarah has just completed her medical degree and I find it admirable that she would come back to the farm to help with mustering, something she has done throughout her life."

Lilli Stromland (Class of 2012), SCEGGS' Co-curricular drawing teacher, also had her portrait (of Derek Parker the owner of Parker Art Supplies) accepted for the salon des Refuses at S.H Ervin gallery.

Both Samantha and Elenarose have attended Lilli’s Monday drawing class for the last few years so it will be exciting to see the work of both teacher and students hanging in the one exhibition.
