Stanton Stephens, owner of Castle Bookshop, was invited to choose his favourite painting at Ludlow Art Society’s Spring Exhibition. He chose ‘Sunshine and Shadows’, a watercolour by a new member of the Society, Catherine Downes.
Catherine is seen here receiving her prize, kindly donated by the bookshop, of a £15 voucher for art materials. Congratulations to Catherine, and the Art Society would like to thank Stanton for his support of the local Art Community.

The Ludlow Art Society’s Spring Exhibition 2014 continues at the Harley Centre, Castle Square, Ludlow  until Monday, 21st April, open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Well done Catherine!

2014 Spring Exhibition

11th - 21st April 2014
at The Harley Centre, Castle Square, Ludlow
10.00am to 5.00pm daily.

Our first show of the year is now open, and the private view was extremely well attended! Local MP Philip Dunne was due to formally open the show, but a travel delay meant we had to begin without him - however, he was in time to make his Judge's Choice in the main show (Rob Leckey's 'Conwy from the Town Walls'), and to judge the smArt kids' table (Louis Lawley's work was Highly Commended, and first prize went to Maddie Bayliss). The Silk Top Hat prize was awarded to Catherine Downes' 'St Justinians', and the Castle Bookshop prize will be awarded soon!

Some photos from the evening:
