The final winner in The Saint John’s Bible Student Exhibition is Isabella Plust for her painting, In the Beginning.

What is this all about?

How does the Bible speak to you? First-year visual arts students were invited to view The Historical Books volume of The Saint John’s Bible. They were then issued with a challenge to create a contemporary painting inspired by the text and illustrations contained in the work. 110 paintings were produced. 40 were displayed in the Strathfield Campus Library.

Five of the best artworks were then selected to win prizes by a panel of University staff including: Dr Dermot Nestor (Head of School, Theology), Ms Jeannette Siebols (Senior Lecturer, Visual Arts), Ms Monica Wondracz (Manager, Coop Bookshop), Medwenna Buckland (Liaison Librarian, Theology) and Maria El-Chami (Liaison Librarian – Arts). The standard of artworks was very high. The ACU Library would like to thank all students who participated in the exhibition for their contribution.
