At a preview event for Budleigh Salterton’s 39th summer exhibition, Alastair Urquart presented the Alan Cotton Trophy to John Washington for his picture ‘Gerry, Paul and Roger’.

The painting shows three men who produce flour for the bread that’s sold in the artisan bakery at Otterton Mill and is one of a series of artworks John is creating to record the talents of East Devon craftspeople.

The main week-long Budleigh Art Club exhibition came to an end on Monday (August 27). Throughout the event, demonstrations have taken place and there was a charity raffle to win a portrait painting being commissioned by John Washington.

A spokesperson for the art club said most of the pictures were for sale and visitors were also invited to vote for their favourite.
