It is with great pleasure that we can announce the winner of the Public Vote in our ‘Splash of Colour’ Open Exhibition. We had over 200 votes and they have now all been counted.

And the winner is….Paula Smith!

Congratulations to Paula, who is invited to join judges’ vote-winner Teresa Allen and runner up Maureen Banfield-Hamlin in a shared exhibition next summer.

We would like to say a very big thank you to everybody who took part in the competition. We had more entries than ever before, and are delighted to have had so much local talent on display in our gallery.

Thank you also to everybody who visited the exhibition and voted for their favourite works, and to our judges: Ali Mirmak, Gaynor Wilson and Bob Wild.
