Art Club of the Year 2017

Now in its second year, Leisure Painter is pleased to announce the winners of the 2017 Art Club of the Year. Art clubs around the country were invited to enter five pieces of members’ work, which they felt best represented their club. From the many entries received, ten art clubs were selected to exhibit these paintings at Patchings Art Centre in Nottinghamshire in July. The judges included well-known artist and tutor, Hazel Soan; Liz Wood, artist, tutor and co-owner of Patchings Art Centre: Sally Bulgin, editor of The Artist and Ingrid Lyon, editor of Leisure Painter. First prize was awarded to the Cardigan Art Society – a lively group of artists based in west Wales. The club wins £500 vouchers from Jackson’s Art Supplies plus £100 towards the cost of a demonstration for society members. The two runners-up prizes (£250 vouchers each from Jackson’s Art Supplies) were awarded to the Pinner Sketch Club and the Hornsea Art Society. In addition, members of the public visiting the exhibition were invited to vote for their favourite club and chose The North Lincs Art Society as winner of The People’s Choice Award and recipient of £100 vouchers from Jackson’s Art Supplies. Full profiles of each of the winning clubs will be featured in forthcoming issues of Leisure Painter. In the meantime, all the exhibited works can be viewed on our website at www.painters-online.co.uk
