The work of talented artists from across the area was celebrated at a special event.

A private viewing of Rutland Open Exhibition was held at Rutland County Museum in Oakham and prizes were handed out to the best entries.

The Lord Lieutenant of Rutland, Dr Laurence Howard, opened the event in which more than 140 entries were selected to be on display.

Anglian Water gave four prizes for ‘an original view of Rutland Water’ which several artists chose to enter specifically for.

The winner was Philip Dawson, runner-up was Ken Forrest and Stuart Ball and Christopher Clayton came joint third.

The Arts for Rutland prize was won by Jane Gill, Creative Leicestershire gave its prize to Lorna Vibert, and the Goldmark Gallery prize went to Roger Truseler.

The Swans of Oakham prize for three-dimensional work was won by John Nicholls.

The exhibition is now open to the public at the museum in Catmose Street. It runs until Saturday, April 26.
