The People’s Choice winner of this year’s Open Art at Goole Museum is Matthew Beck, with his drawing of Heath Ledger as the Joker. Matthew will receive his prize of free framing from Bill Reynolds, owner of Gallery Framing on Pasture Road.
Museum Curator, Debbie Hardy, said: ‘The standard of entries was high this year; the public had a hard choice to make. It was very close; there were 216 votes in total and the Joker had 16 votes.
“The next highest total was Jason Wynne, collecting 15 votes for his painting Forest Dawn. I would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote, it is the first year we have run a people’s choice but it has proved very popular.
“I would also like to thank Bill and Kath from Gallery Framing. Their support and kind donation of the prize made it all possible.”
The exhibition was open to all artists from Goole and the surrounding area and included traditional landscapes, alongside abstract art, portraits and illustrations.
