Narrow Boat Reflections by local artist Joe Stockton was one of three paintings that proved highly popular at Leighton Buzzard Art Society’s recent exhibition.

The other two were Liverpool 1 by Sandra Walker and Sunglasses by John Wilkinson.

The trio were among 53 that visitors voted as their favourites.

The winner will be chosen at the next Art Society evening on Thursday, November 19.
The weekend exhibition at Leighton Middle School featured 25 artists and showcased 111 paintings and sculptures.

The Mayor, Cllr Ray Berry, joined more than 200 art lovers who flocked to the display and to watch demonstrations by Bryan Sly, Trixie Dinn, Griselda Hall and Marion Macrae.

The raffle prize – a painting by Keith Hornblower – was won by Sarah Nigi.

Membership of the Society is open to anyone aged 18 or over. Meetings take place at 8pm on the third Thursday of each month.
