This year’s winner of the prize draw at the Spring Exhibition was Elaine Kidd. The collagraph print ‘St Petersburg’ by Jenny Thomas was much admired by Elaine at the exhibition so it was her natural choice on discovering that she had won. ELaine is pictured here receiving her prize from the Society’s chair Antonia Glynne Jones.
After a record number of votes I am pleased to announce the winners of our ‘People’s Choice Vote’.
1st place: ‘Sir Richard and Friends’ by Ian Davenport

“I am thrilled that the RI Panel has selected two of my paintings for this year’s Open Exhibition: Storms, War and Shipwrecks inspired by the 2016 Ashmolean Sicily exhibition, and Venetian Doorbells an image of Venice street furniture”…Diana Sheldon, February 2017.
