Last Day of the Exhibition
The paintings, drawings and other work had been collected so all that remained was for the prize draw to take place. Firstly, winner of the original acrylic landscape painting by Wendy Markham was drawn from the hat by the artist herself - he was Charles Woods, a local resident in Budleigh so congratulations to him.
The winner of the portrait to be painted by John Washington was another Budleigh resident, Beryl Schmidt-Rieche and John will be working with her over the next couple of months. Here he is - strangely, still dressed in full Sir John Millais costume, fresh from the Fairlynch re-enactment of The Boyhood of Raleigh painting just down the road.
The success of the raffle means that we can once again donate to the Club's chosen charities for 2018, Budleigh Hospicecare and Exmouth Open Doors so a big thank you to all who took part.
So - another year, another show. And another success.
To all who gave their time and effort, a massive thank you. To all who exhibited, we hope you received the viewings and sales you wished for - and to all our visitors we thank you for spending time with us and you enjoyed seeing the talent that our club has to offer.
Naturally, we hope to see you all again next year for our 40th Year Ruby Celebration Show.
