Art Club of the Year 2019
Stockport Art Guild 'absolutely thrilled' to be named Art Club of the Year 2019.
Members from nine of the ten UK art groups selected for exhibition in our 2019 Art Club of the Year attended a fantastic opening in the Pavilion Gallery at Patchings Art Centre on Saturday October 12, where Stockport Art Guild were named Art Club of the Year.
Peter Davis from Stockport Art Guild says, 'We are absolutely thrilled to have won. This year is the centenary our club’s formation, so for us to be named “Art Club of the Year” in our 100th year is a very special achievement and definitely cause for a double celebration.'
The winning club (see members and artworks below) was chosen by renowned artist Hazel Soan who also selected Millennium Art Group and Milton Keynes Society of Artists as runners-up.
Stockport win £500 worth of art materials vouchers from Jackson's Art Supplies, £100 towards a demonstration or workshop and a feature in a 2020 issue of Leisure Painter.
Millennium and Milton Keynes each receive £250 worth of art materials vouchers from Jackson's.
The exhibition runs from October 12 to November 12 and visitors can vote for their favourite club to win the People's Choice Award of £100 worth of Jackson's art materials vouchers.
