Rowlands Castle Painting Society’s Silver Cup Awards

Rowlands Castle Painting Society’s AwardsAt the Rowlands Castle Painting Society’s annual Silver Cup Competition members were rewarded with a fine display of work. The competition is open to members only and submissions were entered anonymously. During the evening an American buffet was enjoyed - thanks go to Pat and Ian Hoper, Robert and Suzanne Hughes for the catering.

All present had the chance to socialise, enjoy a glass of wine and then vote for their favourite paintings. David Hughes organised the evening - no mean feat as there is a lot of preparation work involved. He had a band of helpers to take in the paintings, hang the exhibits and then count all the votes. Paddy Holmes; Patron of the society, presented winners with their trophies. Paddy is a staunch supporter of the society and her presence was greatly appreciated.
