2019 Alumni Artist Amelia Johnson (Class of 2017) with her work "The Hands" inspired by the Damascus College motto "To Live By The Light of Christ". The painting is now hanging in the Administration building, parent reception for everyone to see and enjoy.
The art piece shows two hands reaching out towards the viewer, in a manner that shows no urgency or need, but instead offers comfort. The hands reach out from a wreath of Australian natives, including bush flowers and gum leaves, using muted and natural colours that are reflected all over the Damascus campus.
Amelia was selected to be the 2019 Alumni Artist by the Damascus College Leadership team. They had an incredibly tough job in deciding as the entries were all spectacular and every one of them would have been a welcome piece to our growing Alumni Artwork collection.
Entries for the 2020 Alumni Artist open in March.
