Leongatha’s Julie Lundgren-Coulter has been named as the winner of this year’s Your Art Collection (YAC) Award, with her artwork: ‘A Hill Somewhere’. This work will join previous winners of the prestigious Award and become part of Bass Coast Shire Council’s Art Collection.

Judges, David O’Halloran, Tobias Hengerveld and Juan Ford announced the winner at the opening of Your Art Collection exhibition, held at the Wonthaggi Union Community Arts Centre on Saturday.

The exhibition includes works from four local artists, Diana Edwards, Mary Hennekam, Adrian Johnson and Julie Lundgren-Coulter. Each of these artists won a community art exhibition award during the year, progressing them to this final exhibition and the chance to take out the overall YAC Award.

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Brett Tessari, opened the exhibition and congratulated the artists and community groups involved in the Your Art Collection awards during the year.

"This year the YAC awards have attracted more artists to each local art show than we have seen before, with artwork of exceptional quality," Cr Tessari said.

"This kind of event wouldn’t be possible without the organisers of the Community Art Shows and their dedication to the arts in Bass Coast.

"They do some amazing work to support our local artists and generously share their passion, colour and creativity with our community."

The exhibition continues in the foyer of the Arts Centre, located at 96 Graham Street in Wonthaggi until Thursday, 10 October and is open daily from 10.00am to 4.00pm.
