The Memelink Artspace Gallery People’s Choice Award

The Splash team would like to say a big thank you to the Memelink Artspace Gallery for sponsoring the People’s
Choice Award. Gallery owner Alfred Memelink is a past president of Watercolour New Zealand and has served
on the committee for 14 years. He is forever generous to Watercolour New Zealand and the art world with his
knowledge and time.

A total of 1145 visitors completed voting slips. Children, as well as adults, take pleasure in deciding which painting is their favourite. This makes the People’s Choice important and artists pay attention to the subjects and styles that attract votes. We are delighted that a painting by our guest artist, Svetlana Orinko, was the choice of the visitors.

Here are the placings:
  • 1st Restless Harmony by Svetlana Orinko
  • 2nd Thorndon Quay by Dianne Taylor
  • 3rd Early Morning on the Ghost Road by Rosemary Mercer
