Small Works of Art at the 200th Exhibition

One of the more popular and novel features of the last exhibition was a display of 200 mini pieces of art, implemented and masterminded by Julie Lightburn, which proved to be a great demonstration of the diverse range of talent among the membership.

We've already featured many of these on the blog over the summer.  Here's Julie's summary of the project

“Thank you to everyone who contributed plaques to our exhibition of small works of art.  They were all delightful and made a splendid display. With a few last-minute entries we made it to the full 200 plaques.  

There were so many wonderful works of art it was difficult to choose which to bid for in our Preview Evening auction.  Our selector, Paul Blackwell, had the very difficult task of choosing our three winners.  

  • June Hardy was awarded the prize for “Most Original” artwork, 
  • Cath Inglis was given the prize for the “Most Accomplished” piece 
  • Fiona Sheehan was the selectors favourite.

York Art Society is extremely grateful for all the time and effort that Julie put into this part of our exhibition.  

The plaques were also used in  three separate designs for the Tote Bags sold during the exhibition and there are plans for a poster featuring all 200 works.
