A few more pictures from last night's preview at the De Grey Rooms.
A rousing speech by Liam Evans-Ford; producer on Blood & Chocolate and community producer of the award winning 'York Mystery Plays 2012'.
Music and ambience provided by Jean Hotton, a pianist of versatility and part of Pavilion Music who provide beautiful music for a wide variety of ceremonies and events.
The De Grey Rooms provide a stunning backdrop to a wide range of stunning artworks.
It was also time to unveil the choices made earlier in the afternoon by our Selector, Jane Duke of Stoneflower Studios.
Selector's Choice : Cath Inglis' portrait of David Hockney - the snapshot below doesn't do it justice and you really need to come along and view it for the full experience.
Commended by the Selector : Janet Bean ("Tree by Crummock Water"), Roger Baker ("Respite"), Margaret Dale ("Seaholly"), David Hodge ("The Shambles") and Angela McCall ("Autumn in Yorkshire").
Noted by the Selector : Julie Lightburn ("Estuary Dunes"), Rhona Rowley ("Primroses") and Susan Holiday ("Falls")
Once again, many thanks to Jane for admirably filling the role of Selector for us.
