Students Win Angelico Exhibition Art Awards

The Angelico Exhibition for Catholic Students is an annual event on the Catholic schools’ art calendar. The Exhibition is named after Fra Angelico, a 15th Century Dominican Friar and artist. He’s known as the Patron of Artists.

This week, two of our Year 11 students took out awards at this prestigious event.

Bridgette Galipo won the prestigious Fra Angelico Award. This year’s theme was ‘Listen to What the Spirit is Saying’. Bridgette’s piece was titled ‘Voices’.

Bridgitte’s artist statement reads, “The presence of the Holy Spirit guides our behaviours and influences us on a daily basis. The Spirit is always with us and it has been symbolically placed around the subject’s head reassuring a presence that can be heard and felt”.

Congratulations also to Taite O’Neill was presented with the St John of God Health Care Visual Arts Scholarship. This scholarship is awarded to a Year 11 student each year who has shown outstanding commitment to art within their school. This is the first time a Santa Maria student has been awarded this highly regarded scholarship.
