PORTRAIT CELEBRATING PLEASURES OF FAMILY LIFE WINS 2020 CLANCY PRIZE

An evocative triple portrait of a migrant family has won the 2020 Clancy Prize for religious art.

Laurah Tapas, a Year 12 student from De La Salle Cronulla, won the $2,000 prize, leading a hat trick for her school which also produced the top art teacher and the runner-up. Tapas, whose family migrated from Papua New Guinea in 2003, said the work, simply entitled The Family, celebrated the simple pleasures of family life and the importance of family support in migrant communities.
