St Barbe announced the winner of Specsavers, Lymington People’s Choice Award from their recent Open Exhibition. Pete Gilbert with his painting ‘Flood at Whithybed Bottom’ was delighted to be presented with £250 by Neil Constantine-Smith of Specsavers, Lymington.

Visitors to the Open exhibition were invited to vote for their favourite artwork, Pete’s painting was selected from 105 works of art. Penny Curry from St Barbe said “It’s always great to hear the debate whilst visitors decide on their favourite artwork. This year we had a record number of 768 votes right across the exhibition. It was a close-run thing with Pete winning by 7 votes! Thank you very much to Specsavers for sponsoring the prize, it seemed a very apt partnership and made people smile.”
