Purple Flowers

Jun 5, 2024 | News

We are thrilled to announce that Donna’s stunning artwork, ‘Purple Flowers,’ has won first prize in the Abstract Abilities Art Competition!

Donna (a Warrah resident and social and community program participant) is a creative soul with a passion for watercolour. She has been exploring various art mediums for many years and her prize-winning piece, ‘Purple Flowers,’ was inspired by the vibrant summer colours of Warrah gardens and farm, and was created in late 2023.

Donna celebrated this fantastic achievement surrounded by her peers, family, and support staff at the exhibition held at Uniting Bowden Brae Gallery. The event was a joyous occasion where Donna was presented with a certificate and prize, a testament to her talent and hard work. Her artwork, along with those of all the finalists, was proudly displayed, showcasing the incredible talent within our community.

Donna’s excitement was palpable as she invited her dad, Frank, along with her peers and support staff, to join her in viewing the beautiful artworks. The day was made even more special as Donna met fellow artists, enjoyed a delicious morning tea, and shared her big smile with everyone present.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to Uniting for their support and for providing this wonderful opportunity to showcase Donna’s talent.

Huge congratulations to Donna and her family on this remarkable achievement! Her artwork ‘Purple Flowers’ truly impressed everyone, and we are so proud of her.

Please join us in congratulating Donna on this well-deserved recognition!
