This was a great success. It was very well attended and people commented on the great diversity and high quality of artwork on display. Pretty good considering that most of us are amateurs.
Jane Leitch was this year's judge. She is an established artist based in Newton Abbott specialising in Oils and Pastels. Her favourite subjects are animals, and marine and figurative landcapes.
The winners of awards were
The Otter Award For Drawing   Chloe Brice  'Monkey World'
The Leonard Pargiter Award For Watercolours   Tracey Rapson  'Light On The Canal'
The Alwyn Crawshaw Award For Acrylics    Penny Lamb 'Stone Circle'

Once again, we are immensely grateful to our President, Phil Creek, for exhibiting a painting of the scene covered in his recent demo for us. Equally to Jane for the rocky seascape she has displayed. Thankyou to both.
And this year we are raising money for Ottery Help Scheme, based opposite St Saviour's Bridge, which offers voluntary help to all ages in the community according to need. More information on the OHS can be seen HERE

A small selection from over 200 artworks. Alas, there were plenty of beauties that 'got away' because of reflections on glass.  Still, this gives an idea of the quality and diversity of exhibited works.
