A big congratulations to two of our very talented learners Gilly Johnson and Sarah Costeloe.
Gilly and Sarah both had works selected to be part of a trail of images of Bristol. The exhibition was run by the CASS Art shop on Park Street and their works were chosen from hundreds of submissions.
Below you can see ‘Barge on Bristol’ by Gilly Johnson and ‘Monarch of the Gully’ by Sarah Costeloe. Both artists attend Acrylic Painting classes here at Stoke Lodge.
Congratulations to you both – we are so delighted that your work and talent has been recognised and showcased.
Another big congratulations to gardening tutor Jon Wheatley.
