Easter Art Show Results

The ASPI Easter Art Show has been a resounding success.  This year it was held at the Phillip Island Ramada Resort and this proved to be a delightful venue with excellent facilities, helpful staff, beautiful gardens and plenty of parking.  It also gave us access to a new audience and sales of works reached a new high, with 20% of the exhibits sold.  The exhibition continues online until 6th June with the opportunity for more sales to follow.

Here are the results as awarded by our Judges Catherine Robinson and Natasha Williams-Novac.
