TWO award-winning artists will have their work on show in their hometown from today (Thursday).

Artwork by Letchworth Arts Society members Maureen Phipps and Barbara Heaton will fill the Main Gallery at Letchworth Arts Centre until May 18.

Maureen, who moved to Letchworth GC in 1977, has had her work displayed at the Turner House Gallery, Wales’ national museum, as well as winning Letchworth Arts Society’s annual Audrey Farr prize and the Peter Gilman Trophy.

Barbara has been painting and exhibiting around North Herts for more than 30 years and in that time has won competitions in The Artist magazine and one in The English Garden publication.

The Arts Centre’s Caf� Gallery will feature Lynne Moulding’s Happy Animals throughout May.

An illustrator and professional graphic designer, Lynne combines loose hand drawn sketches with computer manufactured colour and textures in an animal pictures exhibition sure to make you smile.
