In 2008, ceramist Kim-Anh Nguyen won the major prize at the Stanthorpe Art Festival with her work Ethereal after driving 8 hours to get to the gallery!

"It was an ordeal getting the work to the gallery; it was an 8 hour road trip from Castle Hill to Stanthorpe. I did the trip with three small children. The kids had to sit right at the back so the art could go on the backseat.

"It was great that I won as I was a bit anxious about telling the kids we were going to do the road trip again to pick it up!

"The ceramics community was in awe when I was the overall winner.

"I entered not thinking it would not get anywhere; ceramics doesn't always get recognized as art. However I had nothing to loose.

"The Stanthorpe Art Festival is a great way of getting your work recognized. The festival has so many beautiful and wonderful artworks and I still find it a bit hard to believe that I won. It's done a lot for me and I am so grateful." - Kim-Anh Nguyen KAN made ceramics mu ceramics studio gallery.
