The Clancy Prize Exhibition took place on Friday the 15th of March, 2019 at the McGlade Gallery, Australian Catholic University. Strathfield. Three Casimir students entered their artworks - Junior Fisiitalia (Yr. 10), Jessica Walsh (Yr10) and Kimberly Parnell (Yr. 12).
The theme for the Exhibition was:"A little mercy makes the world less cold and more just." - Pope Francis
Junior Fisitalia in Year 10 submitted a detailed, colour drawing of Mother Teresa.
Below is Junior's artist statement about his work:
'I've chosen to do a portrait of Mary Teresa Bojaxhiu (Mother Teresa) for Clancy 2019 as her actions and attributes relate to the theme of A little mercy makes the world less cold and more just. Mother Teresa is known for her kindness and ministering to the homeless and to the poorest of the poor. She is an inspiration to me and to the world.'
Over 73 pieces of artworks from schools all over the area were submitted. However, Junior was selected for an art prize in recognition of his impressive artwork.
Junior's incredibly detailed drawing captured the essence of an inspirational woman, who even today is symbolic of compassion, mercy and selflessness.
Junior's drawing won him a prize, and he was awarded a Certificate and a $100 voucher in recognition of his achievement.
Well done Junior for your amazing work! Also, well done to Jessica and Kimberly for creating beautiful artworks and having it displayed at The Clancy Prize!
