Stockport Art Guild named Art Club of the Year 2019!!!
We are thrilled to announce that Stockport Art Guild has been named Srt Club of the Year 2019 by The Artist Magazine and Jacksons!
Members from 9 UK art groups gathered for the Painters Online exhibition opening in the Pavilion Gallery at Patchings Art Centre on Saturday 12th October to announce the winner. Renowned artist, Hazel Sloan, was responsible for choosing the winners and awarded Stockport Artguild with £500 worth of vouchers to spend at Jackson’s Art Supplies, £100 towards a demonstration or workshop and a feature in a 2020 issue of Leisure Painter!
The organisers were very complimentary about us, with Hazel Soan commenting: “Stockport Art Guild won first prize because it’s clear that this club knows how to encourage its artists. The group vibe is greater for the sum of its parts.”
Peter Davis says, ‘We are absolutely thrilled to have won. This year is the centenary our club’s formation, so for us to be named “Art Club of the Year” in our 100th year is a very special achievement and definitely cause for a double celebration.’
