Autumn Exhibition 2019

Our Autumn Exhibition held at Denbies, was fantastic this year! We had more visitors than ever, over 1200 people, many of them regulars, some of them new to the Vineyard and our exhibition, and a lot of them buyers! The Private View evening was as usual very popular with our fans, and many paintings were quickly purchased. We were delighted to have the well known  local artist John Yardley to open our exhibition and select and present prizes to our talented exhibiting members. He told us a little about his working life as a watercolour painter, and his surprise at his ongoing success and international recognition; we all felt very honoured to have him and his wife there for the evening talking at length to DGA members and the public alike. We are extremely grateful to Sir Adrian and Gill White, and Jennette Patterson for selecting FOUR prizewinners for the Denbies Prize, and David Watson for continuing to sponsor the Pullingers prize of a gift voucher for art materials. The Visitors Vote was won by Chris Forsey, with Keith Comber coming a close second for 'Bum-Blebee' and joint third Gay Carlisle for 'Study I' and David Runnalls for 'Winter, Headley Heath', well done to everyone who participated in the exhibition and thank you to the Committee and everyone who helped make the show such a success! A particular thank you too, for my gift of a Rosemary and Co brushes gift token!
