Congratulations to Kimyka Wells for her award winning entry! Kimyka won the $300 People's Choice Award, sponsored by Shane Knuth MP, in the Mission Arts 10th Anniversary Awards Exhibition. We think you'll agree that her work, titled 'Apex', created using a technique called pyrography, is simply remarkable. Mission Arts extends a sincere thank you to Shane Knuth MP, whose sponsorship has made this award possible, to Kimyka for entering such a stunning piece in our 10th Anniversary Exhibition, and to all those who visited the gallery and cast their votes for their favourite artworks.
