Dean then went on to officially open our exhibition. He said that he was honoured to have been asked to choose the artwork for the Opener’s prize. He short listed three pieces from the exhibition as his personal favourites. These were: Leicester Waits by Frank Bingley (oil); Alpine Marathon by Roger Jones (Acrylic); Kiss Me Quick by Jason Garner (Charcoal). He commended all three and then chose Jason Garner’s Kiss Me Quick for the Opener’s Award, which was the lovely Christine Stevens Salver which was donated to the club this year by President Christine Stevens. Unfortunately, Jason was not able to be present, but he was given a round of applause in absentia.The Jean Wells Trophy (awarded by members and guests for best painting) award was won by Geoff Herickx for his painting, Kingfishers (oil). Geoff briefly recounted how he had developed the painting by combining two images.
The visitor's choice award is to be announced soon.
