We had the pleasure of having Tom Hughes Painting on the Bridge Exhibition up from the 29th September - 7th October. The exhibition focused on Hughes' favourite views of the Gorge, where the light, weather and changing seasons genertate a never-ending supply of images that deserve capturing in oil paint.
We had over 1300 visitors come and view the exhibition over the week and had 118 competition entries to win the painting 'Gorge Sunbeam, November'. Tom randomly selected a winner and it was Jo Bennet. She was very happy with her prize!
We really enjoyed the exhibition and it was great that so many people came to see it. Our favourite piece was Last Afternoon, November because of the pink hues and the view of the diverse buildings across the Bristol landscape.
