Devonport Regional Gallery has for many years presented this popular community exhibition by some 60 members of the North West Art Circle. Sadly, the exhibition was cut short this year due to the COVID-19 outbreak and very few visitors got to view the wonderful exhibition, which this year had a very high and even standard.
The Public Vote would have been awarded at the conclusion of the exhibition, but we took the voting online. Voting closed on 7 May 2020.
The main awards were awarded to the following entrants:
Emerging Artist AWARD: Lois Chriss, Waiting for Daddy to Come Home, colour pencil
Highly Commended 2: Sandra Jenkins, Road to Moorlands, oil on canvas
Highly Commended 1: June Wilson, On the Wing, pastel
Major Award Winner: Jacki Murphy, Moody Afternoon, watercolour
Public Vote Winner: Lois Chriss, Waiting for Daddy to Come Home, colour pencil
All of the entries can be seen below.
