Work was sold in aid of Monmouth’s Attik Youth Centre.
The exhibition was very well attended and several pieces were bought for the walls of School House at HMSG.
Throughout the day the public were voting for their favourite artwork.
First prize went to Victoria for her painting of a strawberry, second prize to Fay for her drawing of a horse and the third prize went to Harry of Monmouth School for his ‘Cultural Still-Life’ lino print.
Several HMSG and Monmouth School pupils visited the Art in Penallt festival over the weekend, watching demonstrations by well-respected artists such as Walter Keeler, and trying their hand at throwing, assisted by Monmouth School art staff.
