not the archies, local lad takes highly commended

Not the Archies is a great community initiative in the Yarra Valley supported by the Shire of Yarra Ranges. It provides an opportunity for local artists, young and old to submit portraits in the spirit of The Archibalds now on show at the Tarrawarra Museum of Art.

Cr Samantha Dunn with the Radley family from
The Patch. Proud Mum, Angie and Dad, Stuart
congratulate their ten year old son Archer who
took out a Highly Commended award.
The recent awards were a great occasion and it was terrific to see some Dandenong Ranges locals in the crowd.

I was delighted to see ten year old Patch Primary School Student Archer Radley take out a Highly Commended Award for a portrait of his one year old sister. Archer's parents were proud as punch of his achievement.

Cr Samantha Dunn with Dandenong Ranges locals,
Noah Symons - local artist and musician behind
Great Earthquake, portrait sitter, Kallista Primary School
Principal, Barbara Rose and local artist who painted

It was great to see local artist Noah Symons submit a portrait of David Eames (as well as be the subject matter of a portrait by Gabrielle Symons) and Kallista Primary School principal, Barbara Rose, subject matter of a portrait by another local artist, Pauline Molenaar.  

It's a wonderful community event, if you'd like to see all the portraits online, click here.
