Audience Choice Award - Winner Announced
The winner of the Audience Choice Award for Exeter Contemporary Open 2012 is Aly Helyer.
Hundreds of visitors to the exhibition have been voting for their favourite work and Aly's rich and colourful paintings representing creatures of the unconscious were a clear winner. On hearing the news, Aly said:
‘I’m thrilled! Being a painter is, by its very nature, a solitary existence, so for people to connect with my work on any level is so important to me. I’m thankful to Exeter Phoenix for offering me the opportunity to exhibit and get this kind of feedback.’
Aly Helyer's 'An X Lover' and 'Tender Pervert'
Aly will receive the £200 prize, which is sponsored by Exeter Natural Health Centre.
'Exeter Natural Health Centre is delighted to be sponsoring this award and Aly Helyer's beautiful, vibrant works are well deserving of the prize.'
Ali Morrish, Exeter Natural Health Centre
