Visitors to the Thelma Hulbert Gallery (THG) have made their choice in a poll held at the cultural centre.

AT a special ceremony held in Honiton’s THG on Saturday, September 25, Jane Perkins, from Kenton, was announced as the winner of The Visitors’ Choice for her colourful homage to Van Gogh’s ‘Sunflowers’, constructed from found objects and mixed materials.

Visitors to the Thelma Hulbert Open 2010: Renewal and Regeneration exhibition were asked to vote for their favourite exhibit, and Jane was the runaway winner.

The prize-giving coincided with the start of the latest exhibition at THG, ‘Inspirational Objects’, which runs until November 6.

Jane’s prize of £100 was generously donated by Honiton Auctioneers Bearnes, Hampton and Littlewood, which occupies premises close to the gallery in Dowell Street.

‘Van Gogh Revisited’ is now touring the country as part of a solo show.
