Cynthia scoops Pool Art Group honour
10:00am Wednesday 13th February 2013 in News
A relatively new member of Pool-in-Wharfedale's painting community is celebrating being named Artist of the Year.
Cynthia Gilks’ miniature watercolour of a tied-up boat earned her Pool Art Group’s Artist of the Year Award.
Cynthia (pictured), who lives at Churchill Flats in the village with her husband Barry, has only been a member of the group for a year.
Group organiser Pat Walker described Cynthia’s winning entry, which was chosen by an independent adjudicator, as a “delightful little watercolour”.
Now in its seventh year, the group meets from 10am to noon at Pool Methodist Church each Friday and has held several successful exhibitions.
