- The Award for a Highly Commended Drawing (Sponsored by Stabilo) Kew Waterlilies 1 by Peter Woof
- The Award for a Highly Commended Work in Monochrome (Sponsored by STABILO) - The Generation Gap by Suzy Herbert.
Frank Kiely, the prize-winning fine art printmaker and a Council Member of the Royal Society of Painter Printmakers was invited by the SGFA to award the prizes. I was talking to Frank last week and he told me how it took him three hours to decide how to allocate the various awards as the standard of work was so high. You can see Peter and Suzy's work, along with that of the other award winners by scrolling down the page on the home page of the SGFA website
Readers of this blog will recall that both Peter and Suzy also won prizes at this year's UKCPS Annual Exhibition as well (see UKCPS Annual Exhibition 2008 - Award Winners). This exhibition finishes next Tuesday and if you've not seen it yet you can find details of how to visit in 7th Annual Open International Exhibition 2008 and AGM.
If you are a UKCPS member, do please let me know if you've won a prize for your art or received a commendation in a juried exhibition with another art society.
