NZ Sculpture OnShore was thrilled to have two new prizes on offer for the exhibiting schools this year, the Angela Morton Secondary School prize and the Angela Primary School prize.
We are pleased to announce the winning schools for 2018.
The Angela Morton Secondary School Prize 2018 of $3000 goes to Westlake Girls High School for their entry on, ‘How do humans affect our marine life?’
Judges, Ross Liew Co-Curator and Rhonwen Dewar Chair, Friends of Women’s Refuge Trust said, “This installation has an intriguing sense of exploration to it. Audiences are invited to view a variety of individual works showing the impact of humans on marine life through torch light in the darkness revealing the marine scapes of rock, coral, plants and creatures damaged and altered by pollution and human interactions in the ocean. There is evidence that students had a good understanding of the overall concept and construction of the works demonstrated a high level of detail and creativity. The exhibit creates a cohesive and immersive experience for the viewer, inviting discovery and play with these efforts rewarded by intimate encounters with engaging objects and pleasing details.”
The Angela Morton Primary School Prize of $1000 goes to Milford Primary School for their entry on, ‘The fantastic tea party take ‘high tea’ to another level.’
This installation is a playground of colour, creations and fantasy. It is a sensory delight for the viewer to see how individual students have explored the theme in their own unique style using a variety of materials and methods. Older students have been encouraged to explore more adventurous take on the theme with elaborate hats and items to add to the party. Although many students have participated in the collaborative works, the finished product is cohesive, bold and vibrant. There must have been some fun learning conversations that took place to get here.
NZ Sculpture OnShore would like to thank all schools for their amazing exhibits this year, the work produced by all students was outstanding.
