Geoff Sargeant Wins Top Award

Geoff Sargeant’s piece “Sacrificial Stone - Tynong Quarry” won Best Picture at the Australian Guild of Realist Artists (AGRA) Autumn Exhibition.  Geoff, who lives in Victoria, Australia (and is a member of our CPSA chapter), says this has been a goal for many years and it is hard to compete with all the other media.  About his fantastic drawing, Geoff says "The subject is a mysterious quarry where the granite for Melbourne's Shrine of Rememberance of the First World War came from. It is close to where we live.”

Congratulations, Geoff—way to represent our favorite medium!
