NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2009:

RED Inc in partnership with RealArtWorks Inc present the

Getting ready for the Macushla Doyle Memorial Art Prize

- Natasha Ulyatt with her painting which recently won first prize in the Contemporary Living Issues section of the Lismore Show art competition;

Cassie Parsons; Amy Serone and her painting which took out first prize in the Lismore Show Landscape section; and Christy Parker.

“It’s great that they won the open section of the Lismore Show art competition, not a youth or special needs section,”

Kerrie Divett,

RED Inc art organiser,

“they won because they take themselves seriously as artists and keep working at their art practice.”
