Winners of the new Clevedon artist of the year competition has been announced.
In a new art competition held at Polodango, Old Church Road, the aim is to encourage all local artists to put their creations forward for a public vote.
Its first year saw more than 750 people vote for Stephanie Gay who received first place for her ‘Spirit of Clevedon’ piece; Paul Dainter got second for his oil painting ‘Chair and Teresa’; and Tim Stephens got third place for his ‘Clevedon Rocks’ work.
Owner and organiser of the event, Paul O’Dango, said: "I'm extremely pleased with the turnout for the event.
"We had a great deal of interest from both artists and the art-loving public, we also raised some much needed funds for amazing local charity Springboard."
Business manager at Springboard Opportunity Group, Jo Kingscott, said: "We are so grateful to Polodango and all of the artists who took part in the event.
"The entries were fantastic and our congratulations go to Stephanie, Paul and Tim.
