SPRING EXHIBITION PUBLIC VOTE

Congratulations to Jean Owen for winning the Public Vote at our Spring Exhibition! 

2023 BILL COCKERILL AWARD

Congratulations to Val Shaw for winning the Bill Cockerill Award this year with her  painting entitled 'Puffins'.

 

HISTORY OF THE AWARD

 

 

Bill Cockerill was a long-standing member of the Art Club who painted West Country Landscapes in oils.
For over a decade the general public voted a painting of his as the best in each Summer Exhibition. He
 was proud of this achievement since, as he said with a twinkle in his eye, no judge at the Preview Party had ever commented on his work. He thought, however that many new members were reluctant to submit paintings in the Summer Exhibition. This was possibly due to the presence in the club of professionals who had been trained at the Slade School and other art establishments. He said
that he would like to give a trophy which would be competed for by members of less than 5 years standing. Bill then presented the silver salver [now known as the Bill Cockerill Trophy] which he said had been a wedding present and on the Club’s behalf we thanked him and each new a new artist wins the award.
