Pastel acrylic portrait by New Zealand artist Karen Rankin

I'm delighted she made it into the final exhibition of the annual Tasman National Art Awards, being held in Mapua until 7th October. 349 entries were received from all over NZ and 126 artworks made it to the exhibition. 

Congratulations to all the award winners this year! Can't wait to see the exhibition, if you're passing please do pop in, there is a People's Choice Award the public can vote for!
