Double Take People's Choice
Staged at the Manningham Art Gallery in Doncaster, the Victorian Woodworkers Association's Double Take in Wood exhibition ran from October 19 until November 11, 2017.
Awards were announced on the opening night, however People's Choice was awarded on the basis of visitor votes cast during the exhibition period. Voting was extremely close with Benjamin Reddan (shown above) taking out The City Rural Insurance Brokers People's Choice Award for his Tea Set. Benjamin also took out Best of Show ($3,000).
Second place, only one vote behind in fact, was Kanga Rocka in figured (blackwood by South Australian designer maker Gray Hawk.
The equal third place went to Angelo Toppi for his wine cabinet, Phoebe Everill for Winton Chair and William Matthysen for Clock 190.
