Leafield’s Big Art Competition is getting closer and it’s grant aided by West Oxfordshire District Council www.westoxon.gov.uk

West Oxfordshire District Council Community Activities has provided us with the grant of £200 we requested to help frame the pictures of Leafield selected by all of YOU who come to the reception and exhibition of images on display in the Village Hall on Wednesday 13th July, 2016.

The success of the Art Workshop on the afternoon of Sunday, 24th April clinched our application. Local artists: Simon Bentley – photographing Leafield, Jeanette Cayley – Leafield in water colours and Janey Petterson – working with clay, were enthusiastically joined by seven Leafield residents for three hours of hands-on creativity, sustained with free tea and cake courtesy of Fieldtown Ladies.

We are hoping for lots and lots of images of Leafield from Leafield residents. Everyone, from 4 – 94, is invited to join in by submitting up to three pictures, in any medium you choose. Entry is £5.00 per picture, but free for children under 12 years. Old photographs of Leafield, presently on the website, are also going to be framed and put up in the Hall on permanent exhibition alongside the selected works of art.

Entry Forms are available from the foyer of the Village Hall, the Shop and the Leafield website. Or contact us and we will send you one by email attachment or drop one off at your house. Each picture must be accompanied by a completed Entry Form.

Entries should be brought to the Hall on Tuesday 12th July, between 12pm and 4pm, and 6pm and 8pm, for public display on Wed 13th July, 2016
