Introducing our Art Adjudicator for 2020 – Burdekin Art Society
The Burdekin Art Society was formed in 1971. At present members, meet in their clubhouse at MacMillan Street Ayr on Tuesdays and Saturday to paint and socialize. Seminars with visiting tutors are also held here periodically. Many members have undertaken different courses in a variety of mediums at T. A. F. E. Years of painting experience enables those members who are doing the judging to give constructive, helpful advice. They get much pleasure in encouraging the young in the exciting world of the visual arts.
Introducing our Photography Adjudicator for 2020 – Chiara Oar
“Born and bred in Ayr, I went to primary school at St Francis School and completed my high school years at Burdekin Catholic High School. Throughout my schooling years I would always compete in the Burdekin Junior Eisteddfod. I would enter in speech and drama, art and music. With always having a love for photography I went on to study at James Cook University. It was here that I completed a Bachelor of Photography in 2007. In 2008 my husband and I purchased the Ayr Camera Centre and I opened a photographic studio. We sold the Ayr Camera Centre in 2013 and over the last 11 years I have spent much of my time photographing local families, debs, businesses, graduations and much more. Over the years I have had much pleasure adjudicating the Burdekin Eisteddfod and look forward to another wonderful year.”
