With her artistic submission Bird on Wire, young Simran Singh from Glen Waverley won the under-18 category in the recently held Waverley Art’s Society’s Annual Exhibition. Children were asked to submit two artworks, and Simran’s submission of Bird on Wire was the winner. Simran started art classes this year, tutored by her teacher Anita Van Grootvelde. The classes are held at Mount Street Neighbourhood house with the support of the Waverley Arts Society.

The Waverley Arts Society held their 43rd Annual exhibition at the Highway Gallery in Mount Waverly from 6-31 October. The exhibition was well attended. Simran received a membership from WAS for being selected as a winner. Her parents Dr. Ina Takkar and Dr. Harpreet Singh are proud of their daughter’s talent and delighted with her achievement.
