A piece titled The Eyes of Wisdom has been selected as the winner of the People’s Choice award in a competition at a Sleaford gallery.
Visitors to the recently held portration exhibition at the Carre Gallery, in Carre Street, Sleaford, chose Anita Mortimer’s graphic study of an elderly man in a turban as their favourite of the collection.
The event had been supported by the Chattertons Solicitors.
Solicitor Ben Ellis from the Sleaford office of Chattertons visited the gallery last week to present Anita with her People’s Choice award.
He said: “Chattertons are very pleased to support this local exhibition which demonstrated a high degree of artistic skill.”
Anita said: “I was surprised and very pleased to have my drawing chosen.
“It is great encouragement. I am still in shock.”
