PRIZES AWARDED BY ART CLUB

At a demonstration of portrait painting hosted at Woodbrook Academy School, Loughborough held on 25th June, Charnwood Drawing & Painting Club presented prizes to various members and invited guests who took part in the Club’s annual exhibition at Woodhouse Eaves.

The main prize went to Allan Brown for his best in show picture of ‘Magpie Cottage’. Allan had this to say about winning the Allan Dorrell trophy: “Winning this trophy was totally unexpected. I am delighted that so many people voted for me”.
