Jenny Cattonar's Art accepted at Winton Queensland Art Show

Art Scene
I was delighted to meet well known Broken Hill artist Jenny Cattonar in January this year at her gallery in Argent Street.  So I was particularly pleased to read in the March 24 edition of the “Barrier Daily Truth” that a piece of her work – Alone With Space – has been accepted in the upcoming “The John Villiers Waltzing Matilda Outback Art Show" in the Queensland town of Winton.

The exhibition runs from 30 April to 22 June 2012 and is a national competition for paintings and three dimensional works, and is supported by The John Villiers Trust.  The official opening and award announcements are on Friday 4 May.
It sounds like a wonderful exhibition but unfortunately I don’t think I can get there.
I wish Jenny all the best in this competition.
Cheers, Jane D
