Winner of Best in Show 2010 is...

Loire Valley Harvest by Janie Pirie (Mrs Thorogood)
Winner of the Caran d'Ache BEST IN SHOW 2010 Award (£400)

Janie Pirie (Mrs Thorogood) has won the Caran D'Ache Best in Show Prize at the UKCPS 9th Annual Open International Show with her exquisitely detailed work Loire Valley Harvest.

Janie's inspiration came from  
a hot summer day when I was walking through a vineyard in the Loire Valley.  The grapes were being harvested in the fields beyond.  I felt I had to capture the moment before the vines were stripped of their fruit.  I wanted to show the bright sunlight and the deep, moist shadows as well as the bloom on the grapes".  
You can see this work and the other award winners at the Stamford Arts Centre, 27 St. Marys Street, Stamford, PE9 2DL between now and Friday 1st October (Monday to Saturday 9am to 9pm)
