Erik Shahmoradian wins the community’s vote

by Emily McTaggart

Life, a small and delicate ceramic artwork by Glenwood artist Erik Shahmoradian, has been voted the winner of the People’s Choice Prize in the 2018 Blacktown City Art Prize.

87 artworks in a range of disciplines including drawing, painting, sculpture, printing and ceramics were selected for exhibition by a panel of arts professionals.

The People’s Choice Prize gives the community an opportunity to engage with the exhibition by inviting visitors to choose an artwork they feel is most deserving of recognition.

Visitors to the annual exhibition were asked to cast a vote at The Leo Kelly Blacktown Arts Centre or through the Prize’s own Instagram account @blacktowncityartprize. This year, we received a record number of votes – in person and online!

Mr Shahmoradian will receive $1,000 as the winner of the popular vote.

The Blacktown City Art Prize is proudly supported by Ford Land Company, WestLink M7, Blacktown Workers’ Club and Blacktown City Council’s Environmental Services.

Entries for the 2019 Blacktown City Art Prize will open in July.

Entry forms will be available here at blacktownarts.com.au.
