Horse in Art 2016 Plein Air winning entry by Jane Braithwaite ASEA

As part of 2016’s Horse in Art exhibition at Palace House, Newmarket a drawing competition was held for artists to produce and submit a piece of art created on the exhibition’s opening day using Newmarket to capture their own interpretation of what the horse means to the town. The winning submission was hung as part of the exhibition.

The weather for 2016 entries did bring new meaning to the words ‘water colour’. The eventual winner, chosen from a strong field, was Jane Braithwaite ASEA and her winning entry (pictured) reflects the conditions on the day.

The Summer Exhibition 2017 Plen Air takes place on Monday 10th July. Anyone and everyone are welcome to join in, further details are available on the Summer Exhibition page.
