Come outside – the winner chosen at Bridgwater Arts Centre.

Yes, for the second year running, the winner of Chandos Society President John Allen’s Award, as chosen by Watchet gallery owner Nick Cotton, was Pat Preater. Pat’s small and beautifully executed paintings are a feature of many of our exhibitions.DSCF6196 cropped

My photograph does neither Pat, nor Nick, nor the painting any justice but it was a busy evening, attended by the Mayor and Lady Mayoress of Bridgwater. Nick Cotton indefatigably discussed artists’ work with them all evening. Here’s the ‘celebrity’ lineup:



You can recognise Nick, the Mayor and Mayoress. The other two are John Allen, President of the Chandos Society of Artists,  and me. Not that difficult!

    Great exhibition! I am proud to be a member amongst such talent. Great art, good conversation and company. If you weren’t there you are not getting the best from your membership!

  2. It was such a surprise to win an award for my picture. The exhibition was very interesting with lots of fresh approaches to painting I’m so glad that we were able to come to the private view
