N21 Festival : The Summer Exhibition
There were sixteen entries from both adult and junior artists.
The subjects chosen to depict N21’s special buildings included the Friend’s Meeting House, the Old Post Office Station Road, Holy Trinity Church Green Lanes, Winchmore Hill Station, The United Reformed Church Compton Road, St Paul’s Church, The Old Bakery, The Salisbury, The Kings Head and the shops on Winchmore Hill Green.
The Standard of work was very high, pencil drawings, watercolour and coloured crayons were used to express the artist’s ideas and sensitivity to their chosen subjects.
All the entrants’ work was displayed on the Green, as part of the N21 Summer Exhibition, where it attracted a great deal of interest amongst the exhibiting artists as well as the visitors.
The judges for the Competition were Father Marcus Walker and local designer Sophie Smith.
Both agreed the decision to choose the best work was very difficult but after much deliberation the prizes were awarded to Rosalina Hurst (aged 8) for her painting of the Friend’s Meeting House and Kremena Dimitrova (grown up!) for her illustration of the ‘Postman’s Office N21’ .
