9/5/2017 – A great big thank you to Kay MacFarlane Smith for judging our Charlestown Square exhibition. It is the first time we have exhibited here and although we only began yesterday, the exhibition is already creating huge interest. With plenty of space for the display, the public are really enjoying wandering around taking time to view all the artwork, with many starting as soon as the boards were uncovered. Congratulations to Jenny Elks for winning the Joe Punshon Silver Palette Award this year with her gorgeous watercolour ‘Africa 1’ (pictured above) – and to all our other winners as well, the full list below. Don’t forget if you’re thinking of seeing this wonderful exhibition it is only on for one week – finishing lunchtime Mothers Day 14/5/17!
