The Lawson's Dry Hills People's Choice Award 2018

The Lawson's Dry Hills People’s Choice award is a 4 panel Artist Pack for the winner.

 The ten most popular selling artists of 2017 will return to our 2018 show to present us with a specially created artwork to represent them in the Lawson's Dry Hills people's Choice Award 2018.


The award winner for the Peoples Choice Award is voted in on the spirit of being the "people's choice" by The Christchurch Art Show audience, friends and supporters


 The winner of the Lawson’s Dry Hills People's Choice Award 2017 is Kaikoura artist Jane Riley. Jane's winning work "Canterbury Triptych' was a clear favourite with you all! The clear bright colours of the Canterbury skies combined with the cheerful patchwork fields caught people's attention. The continuation of the composition throughout the three separate canvases of the triptych evokes a stained glass window effect for the viewer. The Christchurch Art Show and Lawson's Dry Hills would like to congratulate Jane on her win. Jane wins a $3,000 prize package which includes a 4 panel exhibiton pack with which we will see her exhibit with next year at The Christchurch Art Show 2018.
