The people have chosen!

Homelessness Week has now passed, and the winners of the Art Space 2021 People’s Choice Award have been selected.

Visitors to the Art Space were encouraged to vote for up to five of their favourite artworks in an online survey.

Congratulations to Wintringham artists, Jen for her winning pieceCherry Tree, the runner-up was actually a tie between two artworks;Bird in the Foliage andOcean view from Williamstown, and it just so happens that both these pieces were painted by the same artist - Garry! And congratulations to Nola, who was our lucky winning voter. Jen, Garry, and Nola have each been awarded aMelbourne Artists’ Supplies voucher for their efforts.

The fifteen winning pieces for next year’s calendar and this year’s Christmas cards were announced on Wintringham’s social media channels throughout Homelessness Week and can be viewed here. Production of the 2021 calendar is currently in progress, and will be distributed to Wintringham’s clients before Christmas.

A limited number of calendars will be available for sale to the general public. If you would like to express your interest in purchasing one when they become available, please email the Wintringham Communications Team at communications@wintringham.org.au.

The Art Space online exhibition will remain online for your viewing. You can access the Art Space at www.art.wintringham.org.au.

With more than 100 stunning artworks of all different styles and mediums, crafted by our creative clients, there will be something for everyone! Our artists spend many hours and put a lot of thought into their pieces, so to show your support, please take a look!

Many artworks will be available for sale again this year. You can purchase your favourite works by clicking the links on each art piece, email your full name and best contact number and a friendly staff member will be in touch to finalise your purchase. This is the perfect opportunity to purchase a beautiful original art piece for your home.

We’re also excited to confirm that our People’s Choice Award is back for another year, thanks to Melbourne Artists’ Supplies! Once again, Melbourne Artists’ Supplies team have generously donated $500 worth of vouchers, which will be awarded to the artist whose piece receives the most votes, the artist who receives the second highest number of votes, and a randomly selected voter.

Voting is open from 2 – 8 August for only one week via an online survey. We’d love to know which your favourite pieces are, so get voting!

As always, a panel of judges will be choosing 15 artworks to feature in Wintringham’s annual calendar, and Christmas cards. The winners will be announced during Homelessness week.

Unfortunately with Covid restrictions in place again this year, the physical exhibition was put on hold for another year, so please visit our exhibition online which is open from 2 August – we look forward to showing you the many talents and creativity of our Wintringham artists!
