Summer Exhibition 2023

The group had another successful Summer Exhibition at the Strand Centre. There was a change to our displays this year – only three of our own stands were used, with the main set of stands being hired. We would like to replace the older stands and appreciated the opportunity to try out a newer configuration.

Clare Jenkinson kindly judged the artwork on the opening morning of the exhibition. She awarded the prizes as below. This year we added the award of Highly Recommended for up to three artists across all the categories.

Visitors’ favourite painting

Visitors were asked to vote for their favourite painting. In contrast to other years the votes were fairly evenly split across the group. Winter Night by Lorna Start edged ahead on the final day to win.
