22nd Members’ Art Show & Sale
1st - 3rd November 2019
Our 22nd Members’ Show attracted a good number of visitors, in spite of the poor weather and there were many comments on the variety and excellent quality of the artwork. There was great variety of paintings, in a range of media - something to suit every taste. 58 Members contributed 211 pieces of artwork and 3D, plus 3 browsers of unframed work and many cards.
The prizes this year were as follows:
The May Bennett Award for best Still Life went to Brenda Thompson for her acrylic painting, “Autumn Harvest of Gourds”
The Marie Goldsmith Award for service to the HAS went to Ray Ward for his watercolour painting, “River Lea, Bircherley Green”.
The Enid Fairhead Award for the Members’ choice went to Sandra Edney-Lynch for her oil and pastel painting “Quinbury with Snow”.
The Visitors’ Choice Award went to Shuli Han Dulley for her watercolour sheep dog portrait “Waiting for his Master”.
This year we had no entries for the new prize, the First Time Exhibitor Award. Hopefully we can encourage some shyer artists to exhibit their work next year.
Finally, our thanks go to all those Members who worked hard for their Society's Show, whether setting up or dismantling, stewarding or making teas (and cakes!). This is a show which involves a great many members in its production. Once again, it was a great success and provided a vibrant and exciting show for the many visitors who called into Cowbridge Halls over the weekend.
