Prize winner

Congratulations to Wendy Riddick who won our first prize in the VAN Winter Exhibition competition at the University Centre Shrewsbury.  The winning work entitled 'Through The Eye of the Needle', is a complex intricate textile piece.  Wendy received her £250 first prize at the Private View event on 11/10/2019.  Wendy  trained at Goldsmiths and subsequently worked as an archaeological illustrator. Now a Shrewsbury based textile artist, she has had several solo exhibitions and has produced work for exhibitions at Powis Castle 2015 and Berrington Hall, 2017.  The competition was judged by Jonathon from The Soden Collection Contemporary Art and Sculpture gallery, 80 Wyle Cop, Shrewsbury.

Chris Williams

Chris draws inspiration, for much of her work, from the beautiful Shropshire landscape in the Bridgnorth area of the county.She studied Fine Art (BA Hons) in Newcastle and at the Laird School of Art. She paints using mainly oils, and captures the essence of  delightful country lanes and rural fields with her refreshing use of light and carefully observed detail. She draws on a daily basis to inform her work using graphite, charcoal and pastel.
