LAS Press Release - SmART club

From Lee Anderson, LAS Publicity Officer:

It was smiles all round when Alan Hobbs, chairman of the Ludlow Art Society, presented prizes to youngsters from SmART, the Saturday morning art Arts and crafts club run by Tanith Kinton at the Ludlow Assembly Rooms.

The youngsters had entered their artwork in a special competition held as part of the LAS 65th annual summer show, which took place in the Harley Centre in late August.

Broken into two categories – work from those aged under eleven and those eleven and over – the seventeen entries in the competition were judged by artist, Claire Spencer.

Particularly happy with the outcome was ten year-old Rose Gifford, who not only took a “highly commended” award for her “Dancing Flowers” entry, but also sold her “Colour Strands” painting to a buyer from one of the 877 visitors to the summer show during the ten days it was open.
