You may remember meeting Buckingham House member Amy Agus in June 2018 Panorama. ‘It would be awesome to have an exhibition of my works one day,’ Amy told us at the time. Well, now she is one step closer to that goal.
Here she is pictured with her sculpture ‘Petri’ after Kiakshuk (plaster owl) at the Annual Studio Exhibition at the Tom Bass Sculpture Studio School and Clara Street Gallery in Erskineville, near Sydney.
Over 100 pieces of work were displayed at The Annual Exhibition which was opened by the Lord Mayor of Sydney Clr. Clover Moore.
The Manager of Buckingham House Donna Shrubsole and Art Group Facilitator Jane Caveney (from Pine Street Creative Centre) attended the event to support Amy. Amy, who has a Certificate IV in Fine Arts, had been a participant in Buck House’s Thursday Art Group. Later, she volunteered for the role of facilitating our Friday afternoon young adults art group ART ATTACK. She will be continuing in this role for the next quarter.
Amy had been sent a link by a staff member of Buckingham House to apply for a Scholarship with the Tom Bass Sculpture Studio School and Clara Street Gallery. Not only was she successful on that occasion, but now she has received a second ten week scholarship!
