Four art works from each of four finalists – Jill Rogers, Diana Edwards, Tom Tyrrell and Diana Wilson – were in the running for the award.
The finalists were the winners of Bass Coast’s five community art shows held throughout the year. This year, Diana Edwards received two YAC awards, at the Artists’ Society of Phillip Island and Bass Coast Artists’ Society exhibitions, making the final exhibition a showcase of four artists.
An independent panel of experienced curators and art experts, Juliette Hanson, Rodney James and Raylene Sharp, judged the works.
The Your Art Collection exhibition, featuring the 16 works, is at the Cowes Cultural Centre, daily from 10am-4pm until next Saturday, October 1.
