Honourable Mentions:
Joy Struthers “Retrieval of Time “, acrylic
Very painterly and sensible approach to figure painting- a back in time memory trip.

June Hoffland “Summer Daze”,  acrylic
Original, contemporary approach to figure painting, very refreshing take on a familiar subject, with an unusual angle and choice of colour.

Vera Bobson “Rising”, watercolour
Watercolour at its best, good command of the medium and a strong composition

Great contrast of a powerful composition and subdued lyrical colours, this print is taking us on a dream trip.

Mira Martinez, Stacked, Mixed media/collage.
Unexpected surrealist view on an old mundane subject, well done!

First Prize :    
Sarah Rochon, “Shapes of Holidays Dreaming ”. Acrylic/ collage.
A very bold statement of a powerful design, painted  with such  colour delicacy, a delight!

Congratulations to you all !


Our "Highlights 2018" show


"Highlights 2018", the EAG Members’ Choice exhibition,  was held in the NPCC Main Gallery from Monday, February 5 to Sunday February 25, 2018.
The original reception date   had to be cancelled because of the weather with freezing rain/snow preventing many members from traveling. A very successful reception was held on the 24th instead.

Congratulations to the winner of our Viewer's Choice award: Sue Archibald for "Up the Rock to the Edge of The Sea II"
