A Sleaford gallery has once again been recognising the artistic talent that was on show at its open exhibition this summer.

Carre’s Gallery, in Carre Street, has presented two more awards following the event earlier this year.

The showcase was held for four weeks across July and August and attracted a record number of entries.

At a presentation evening in July, a number of honours were awarded to participating artists.

That number has now increased by two.

Artist Chris Jones has been presented with the People’s Choice Award.

During the exhibition, visitors were asked to vote for their favourite image, with Chris being honoured for her image of a long-haired dog, entitled Bad Hair Day.

Fellow exhibitor Euan Boyd-Wallis has been presented with the Directors Award for his painting Yellow Field.

Euan had been announced as the winner of the award at the presentation evening, but had been unable to attend.

The pair join fellow prize-winners Janey Hill, who won the Carre Gallery Award for her piece, entitled Pomegranate, and John Lincoln, who won The Lincolnshire Pride Magazine Award for his contribution, Leaves from Eternity.
