An open art postcard competition was held during Cam Valley Arts Trail spring exhibition and sale earlier in May. Our aim was to find a way of introducing art to more people and encourage artists of all ages to join us in celebrating local art.

The theme of the competition was Spring, and we were thrilled with the number of entries and mix of media and ideas sent in by artists.

Martyn Plant, Senior Art teacher at Fosse Way School and active member of Midsomer Norton arts celebrations, kindly judged all the fantastic entries.

The winner was Sandra Burnham from the Paulton Art Club (pictured with Martyn Plant) who took home the prize of £50. Charlie Caffrey from Fosse Way School, received a Highly Commended award.

Cam Valley Arts Trail group would like to thank all those who entered; we know that those who attended the exhibition and sale in Conygre Hall enjoyed looking at the entries and it generated lots of interest..
