Art fes­ti­val suc­cess

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - YOUR NEWS -

This year’s Crow­land Abbey Art Fes­ti­val at­tracted a record num­ber of en­tries and raised more than £600 for the Abbey.

The com­pe­ti­tion drew many lo­cal artists from Crow­land and its neigh­bour­ing vil­lages, as well as en­tries from as far and wide as Spald­ing, Peter­bor­ough, and Thor­ney.

The theme, Weathered & Worn, in­spired an eclec­tic mix of en­tries from pic­tures of ne­glected build­ings, bat­tered ob­jects, many of Crow­land’s land­marks and por­traits of grand­par­ents! At this time of the year in­par­tic­u­lar, many also re­flected on the ef­fects of war. Prizes were awarded to: 1st prize: Fad­ing Mem­o­ries by So­phie Hutchin­son (pic­tured);

2nd prize: Sea De­fence by Janette Olive;

3rd prize: Weathered & Worn by Jen­nie-Marie Du­marche;

8 and un­der: Grandad & Grandma, Worn Hand, Warm Heart by Lilia Mans­field;

9-12 years: Com­ing Home by Aaron Bean;

13-16 years: A Place Called Home by Re­becca Field­ing. Vis­i­tors to the ex­hi­bi­tion voted for their favourite. The Peo­ple’s Choice Award, in mem­ory of fel­low artist Shirley Wal­ton, was pre­sented to Joseph Seth for Me­lan­cho­lia (pic­tured).
