The theme of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ produced a very high standard of artwork which made the judges choice particularly difficult this year! However, we are very pleased to announce our three winners of the Street Fair Art competition.
1st Alfie Thorpe, aged 9 yrs
2nd Genevieve Walkden, aged 6 yrs
3rd Jack O’Reilley, aged 7 yrs
The three winning entries will go to Tim to be framed/mounted as usual for display in the window of Cotswold Frames. Alfie, Genevieve and Jack will be awarded prizes by the Chairman of The Art Society at The Street Fair. All the remaining work will be mounted to exhibit alongside the work of the Charlbury Art Society in the Memorial Hall at the Street Fair.
