Wonderful, immoral, tempting and incredibly satisfactory

CCAS Members Show

15 Nov 2013 to 23 Nov 2013

The CCAS Members Show provides all members with the opportunity to show their work at Gorman Art Centre. Each show has a theme to which members can respond and there are prizes for the best interpretations. CCAS invites a local arts figure to judge the entries each year and for 2013 it is Terence Maloon and the theme is Canberra. The title is a quotation from Prime Minister Robert Menzies described Monaro Mall as '…wonderful, immoral, tempting and terribly satisfactory’ in his speech at the opening on 6 March 1963. An estimated 15,000 Canberrans flocked to the mall on the first day alone and it became an integral part of the nation’s capital as the city grew rapidly throughout the 1960s.

Erik Krebs-Schade won first prize for 2013 while Jodie Cunningham was runner up.
