Newton Abbot Art Group - Autumn Exhibition from 21st to 27 October, 2023
A very successful exhibition enjoyed by all. Tony Berry won the Rosemary Batting Award for best seascape/landscape, and Lesley Byers and Jacqui Thomson jointly won the Public vote for favourite picture.
Newton Abbot Art Group’s Summer Exhibition 2023 was held at Newton Abbot Library.
A smaller exhibition than usual, but intimate and friendly, snuggled among the books.
Many of our new members exhibited and sold, and the exhibition was judged this year by Lynn West, Centre Manager of the Passmore Edwards Centre, and John Skinner.
