The blimey X exhibition has been a great success, with over 200 visitors over the course of the weekend, visiting our two day exhibition.
The preview event included us announcing the winner of the blimey! £500 prize – Carole Thorne for her work ‘The Gathering’ (see image below). The event was well attended with Pimms and cake on offer, as well as the chance to pick up one of the 10 printed postcards.
During the two day exhibition visitors could vote for their favourite artwork, with the winner of the public vote being awarded a further £500 prize.
With 172 votes cast in total, Sharon Simpson received the public prize for her work ‘Three’s a Crowd’ (see image below).
Thanks to everyone who came during the exhibition and the artists involved.

The meeting begins at 7.30pm, upstairs in Darlington Central Working Mens Club, 7 Beaumont Street, Darlington, DL1 5RN.
All artists welcome.
Tomorrow night from 7.30pm will be our next Work in Progress meeting, where we invite people to bring in artwork or ideas for discussion and feedback.
