And the Winner Is…A Great Day Out

Sunday 30th April 2006 saw a sparkling event at the Kitchen Gallery with the Mayor of Halton presenting the Prizes in the Kitchen Gallery’s First Open Art Exhibition for Contemporary Artists in the North West of England.

Lisa Ashcroft was delighted to accept as overall Prize Winner with a cheque and the offer of a solo show in September and a full marketing package, while the staff of Norton Priory voted Rachael Elwell as the winner of the Norton Priory Prize.

The exhibition is the result of a competition which attracted more that seventy entrants from across the North West from which twenty-two finalists were selected.

Over a hundred and fifty visitors crammed into the small but perfectly formed gallery. Visitors were able to meet with many of the artists who were happy to discuss their art works. Despite the weather everyone thought that this event was a great success and the large number of visitors also enjoyed the beautiful surroundings of Norton Priory’s Walled Gardens, where the Kitchen Gallery is lucky to be based.
