2017 Local Artist Visits Stirling Farmers Market
RC Karrinyup was proud to sponsor a local artist in the City of Stirling Art Awards. Following his win last Wednesday, local artist Hank of Menora, seen here with Community Service Director Peter, was keen to visit the Stirling Farmers Market together with his wife Sandra. Market Manager Peter was delighted to show them around.
Management of the market provides the bulk of charity fundraising for the Rotary Club of Karrinyup, much of which is channeled back into the local community through local project such as the Art Awards.
Hank's portrait of an Aboriginal friend cleverly incorporated some impressionist landscape views of the subject’s homeland around Broome. The painting was bought by a very quick off the mark buyer as soon as the win was announced.
