Fenland’s talented artists were given the platform to showcase their work at an arts collective’s landmark summer exhibition.
Their creations took place at ADeC’s 10th anniversary Atelier East Summer Exhibition, held in the Wisbech and Fenland Museum. The exhibition was funded by the Market Place project.
Young harpist Rosie Scott invited the public in and an array of colours flickered around at every direction.
A prize of £100 was awarded to the ‘best in show’ voted by the public to Christopher Witchall with his painting ‘Platforms 1 & 2’.
The Artist in Residency prize was awarded to Patricianne Jones for her ‘Sowing Beans’ featuring both poetry and textile artwork. She will work with the young children in St Peter’s Lodge, Wisbech.
Simon Gilligan, chairman of ADeC, said: “It’s great to see local artists exhibit in this intriguing museum.
“The fact it’s on for a period of five weeks is a fantastic and rare opportunity for more artists to exhibit their art for longer with a greater chance of visitors seeing it. Interesting venue, inspirational art and a warm community.”
Lesley Mardle said: “It’s a really lovely exhibition with a wide variety of different arts.
“From colourful linocuts to creative textiles, it’s all excellent. It’s lovely that people have come from a wide area as far as Cambridge to see this delightful exhibition.”
Father Paul West said: “It’s a beautiful exhibition for community renewal engaging through the arts. I would love to see more projects and involvement in our communities like this.”
