Eastern Open

ALISON CROOSE King's Lynn Arts Centre


King's Lynn Arts Centre

A digital photo and a woodcut shared the honours in this major regional art show, for which a record 322 artists submitted 737 works.

Selectors chose 103 to create a challenging and thought provoking display.

Bold shapes and strong colour are balanced by muted shades in a show which favours contemporary styles and quirky subjects.

Polly Cruse photographed her contrived sculpture on Salthouse Beach to create Row, Row, Row, which was joint best in show with Judith Lockie's woodcut, House.

The East Anglian coast was beautifully depicted by a wood engraved collage from Sue Long's series, Coast, and the landscape award went to Sue Polden's atmospheric picture of Ager Fen Forest, Suffolk.

Other award winners included Adam Wilson's oil on board, Village Scene, Renee Spierdijk's oil painting, Unknown Girl, and Clarissa Upchurch's dramatic work in conte, Façade. Karen Densham used car engine oil on paper to depict aquatic species exposed to oil spills.

The exhibition continues until May 5.
