Sixty two of our members exhibited a panel of their work. Visitors were requested to vote for their favourite panel or indeed their favourite print. We were pleased that a higher proportion of those who came chose to vote this year compared to 2014.
The winning panel was London City Reflections by Jocelyn Horsfall
