Cherry Cup 2017 winning picture by Harvey B

The Cherry Cup was founded by John Cherry, a Hornsea artist who made his living designing and painting heraldic shields. John also ran an art club at Hornsea School. His wife Thelma, who was also an artist and a member of Hornsea Art Society, donated the cup for the School Art Prize upon John's death. The Cherry Cup competition has been running since 1995.

Students from year 7 -10 have the opportunity to enter a piece of art work; any scale, medium or subject. Judging took place by two members of the Hornsea Art Society. Judge Meg Burkill said...

"Mary and I really enjoyed doing the judging today, as usual it was very difficult to choose the winners. There was such an amazing range of ideas and talent. I always find it inspirational."

Congratulations to all students who entered, the four winners and the 'best of the rest'. A special congratulations to the overall winner; year 7 student Harvey B. His winning pencil crayon drawing of the Queen and Prince Philip demonstrates real artistic skill. He was rewarded with £50 and presented with the Cherry Cup by Mrs Egan at a recent celebration evening.

An exhibition of the winners is in the Masonic Hall and runs from the 25th Jul to 5th Aug. 10am - 5pm. The winners work and the shortlisted 'best of the rest' work will be on the Art Society website http://hornseaartsociety.co.uk
