Visitors vote for favourite painting at The Old Grammar School Gallery, Otley
9:00am Saturday 31st August 2013 in News
Visitors to The Old Grammar School Gallery, on Manor Square, were invited to vote for their favourite piece of art in August as part of Otley’s Yorkshire Month celebrations.
More than 500 people took part, with the most votes cast for Sue Brearly’s watercolour, Addingham. Chris North’s photograph of Whitby came second and Brian Hardy’s painting, Clapham, took third place.
The winner received £250 donated by competition sponsor ArtWorks of Otley.
A critics’ choice award was also made, decided by past and future exhibitors, who declared Barbara Place and Kevin Dixon the joint winners. Their reward will be to feature in an exhibition at the venue next year.
