Hawick Art Club’s annual exhibition came to an end on Saturday (August 2). More than 1,400 visitors made this one of the most successful exhibitions to date, with 27 pieces of art sold.
This was the first year that the club has had a Visitors’ Choice award, and it was a great hit with local art lovers. No less than 626 votes were recorded and this year’s winner was Sandy Jarvis for his oil painting of Williestruther. He was closely followed by Tom Elliott for his ‘Voice of Rugby’ painting, a subject close to the hearts of the townsfolk.
